  1. I'm working on a scenario about a fictional 2002 New Mexico gubernatorial election. It's based on the story and characters from the novel The Road To Santa Fe by Norman Zollinger. The story follows the campaign of Democrat Enrique Tyndall Garcia (nicknamed "Rick"). He's the district attorney of the fictional Chupadera County, New Mexico. He's recovering from the suicide of his wife, and looking to just serve out the rest of his term. Democratic Party powerbroker Ashley McCarver runs across Garcia, learns of his story, and recruits him to run for Democratic nomination for governor. The only other candidate for the nomination "...might as well be a Republican," and McCarver sees Garcia as the DNC's only hope of holding onto the governor's mansion. I won't go into further detail about the novel, but I'll put out some information about the scenario I'm working up. Let me know if there's any interest in this. Democrats: Enrique T. Garcia (since Chupadera County is fictional, I placed Garcia in the real life Torrence County which, like the fictional county, is small and rural) State Rep. Sheldon Karp Republicans: State Sen. Tom Owens Mayor Jeff Bench Former Atty Gen. Edward Walker Businessman Neal Handy State Rep. Karen Chapman Green: Prof. Everette Hardin
  2. Hey, Ken! Good to see you around here. I'll try it out and give you some feedback.
  3. Thanks for creating this one! I played my first election just a few hours ago, and it worked great.
  4. I'd love to see a Louisiana scenario done. I'm live there, so I can do my best to help with you with what you need.
  5. I have an old copy of the Theodore H. White classic The Making Of The President 1960 It has the number of votes and percentages for Nixon, Byrd, and Kennedy in the general. I won't promise anything, but I think it may have primary results as well (I'll have to dig it out of my closet and check). If you need any help with that, I'll do what I can.
  6. Did you ever know that you're my hero? Awesome job. I can't wait to try it out.

    New Scenario

    I finally getting around to posting an image from my Villaraigosa campaign. I was able to take control of San Diego, and Riverside counties from Whitman After that, it was pretty much all said and done.

    New Scenario

    I easily won the nomination as Antonio Villaraigosa. I'll finish the general election sometime later today. The scenario is working great, though! The only problem I encountered is Villaraigosa endorsing himself. Seriously, though, you did an amazing job on this! I know I'm not the only one who appreciates all the hard work.
  9. Awesome! Once again, Zion, you've impressed me. Fantastic work!
  10. I'd definitely like a copy of both Brian.senatormurphy@gmail.com Thanks.
  11. This looks fantastic. Good job on all the (probably tedious) work you're putting into this!
  12. brian.senatormurphy@gmail.com Also, I'm curious. How do you create statewide scenarios like this?
  13. I'm pretty sure no one was attacking or ripping into him. They're just putting their info down so they can get the scenario whenever it's ready.
  14. Zion, I thought I'd leave you some feedback since you asked when you first posted the scenario. I have to say it was a lot of fun. I did my Kennedy Vs. Bush play-by-play thanks to your scenario. I made sure to give you some credit for it.
  15. Speaking of the Gold addition (which I was lucky enough to be emailed a copy of ), I just finished this fairly close campaign between Obama/Richardson, and Romney/Gingrich. I was playing Obama The Electoral Vote isn't that close. Though even after Obama was declared the winner, the popular vote majority fluctuated between Romney and Obama. Finally it settled on Obama, but there was still less than a million votes between the two candidates.
  16. Wow. I've had a few close primary races like that too. It'd be pretty cool if we had the option to wheel and deal at the conventions to try and steal delegates away from other candidates, etc.
  17. Sounds great! I'd love to try it. brian.senatormurphy@gmail.com
  18. Yep, he's been there a couple of times that I know of. I doubt he'd change O'Reilly's mind about anything, but he's able to hold his own in a debate.
