There were only two people running however i will ad more if requested to make a primary! (as there wasnt one) Also possibly diffrent parties? Perhaps Libertarian,Constitution,And Socialist(For fun)

Current Republicans:Lynn Swann

Man that'll be a fun one to play. If I recall, Rendell won the election 60-39. I'd love to see if I can top him.

Doing EV's based for 1 every 10k votes. Using the results of the 2012 presidential to determine the strong percentages,and if there leaning left or right,All other counties will be centered. Any suggestions for extra candidates/parties? just finished mapping doing everything else now

Expect it to be a bit closer then that however Philadelphia and counties around that are big for Rendell,Also Allegheny but im giving swann a little boast there because he played for the steelers

If the race is set in 2006, I think averaging out the results from 2004 and 2008 might reflect more accurately(since due to the decline of the steel towns and unions, PA is turning red quick and might be competitive this year and surely 2020)

But delegates for the primaries, good question. I'm working on a scenario for the 2010 SC Gubernatorial Race. I do my best to mimic how delegates are alloted in real life (population, and size of influence in that voting district). Take SC for example, one county a rural county sparsely populated but is a democratic stronghold;the democratic primary should have more delegates in that county(but cant be more than Charleston County), and the republicans delegate count should be significantly less than the other party.

I'm sure there are other ways of figuring out how to delegates in the primaries, but oddly enough we are both doing are EV exactly the same way :D
