I think it makes sense to add a ‘Supreme Court Nomination’ issue to Senate – 2018 for Congress Infinity. My sense is that this issue’s centers to this point follow regional trends generally, and makes it more difficult for red state Dems running for re-election, especially if they oppose the nomination. If that’s right, it makes it a bit tricky because certain Dems (Manchin in particular) might support the nomination, and so the regional issue position would be different from the national issue position, but that can’t be done with the current game engine. Perhaps have events that have region-specific momentum shifts to simulate that, but again that requires modifications to the game engine.
Thoughts and feedback welcome!
