I suppose Greenbrier could be along the lines of a rockefeller republican. Also, if you want I could come up with some more character ideas.

Model two candidates off real life politicians, but don't make it blatantly obvious. We'll see who can discover them ;)

Love playing this, played as Melo several times(didn't win). What I've learned is that you need to turn off a number of the characters because it will slow down the game a bit, while the reporting of the counties/townships will also slow down the game. Still, it's a fun scenario and I would like to see some more of these fictional scenario's(maybe even culminating into a fictional Presidential scenario).
