Virginia's 10th Congressional District Election, 2018

Recommended Posts

I return from my random 10-month forum exile to introduce a work in progress scenario based on the upcoming congressional election in my district. It's expected to be one of the most heavily targeted in the nation, and with a crowded field ranging from the incumbent congresswoman, a federal prosecutor who moved into the district just to run for this race, and an admitted pedophile and white supremacist independent that wants to lead an incel rebellion against the evil feminists, this race is sure to be interesting. I don't have screenshots on this computer, but I've finished the regions and I'm working on adding more candidates prior to Tuesday's primary.

What a pitiful, wretched, loathsome individual. And another one manipulating, lying to, and exploiting people for his own ulterior ends - something beginning a very common story nowadays, unfortunately. :(

He sounds like an interesting candidate to play as /s

I wish there was a better way to express how shitty Nathan Larson is in-game other than just giving him all 1s in attributes.

First screen. The independent cities (Winchester, Manassas Park, and Manassas) are a bit squished, but it works. I'll be releasing more screens as I continue working. I'm considering splitting up the regions a bit more if possible, because the popular vote AI is still broken and targets counties that aren't favorable to them (because they still think it's winner-take-all), so there are sometimes weird results on the map. I want to flesh out the primaries more before releasing it.

I might do one for NY-14 with the big primary happening there once I'm through most of my finals and regents.

Nice. A lot of Democratic primaries seem to be proxy battles between the establishment and the Bernie Sanders/progressive wing of the party, somewhat similar to the situation in the past few years with Republican primaries that are frequently fought between the establishment and the Tea Party wings. It'll definitely be interesting to see how the factionalism plays out.

Joe Crowley has said Cortez is "making this race about race."

Ironically, in the Deep South State Elections Democratic Primaries between the 1870's and 1960's (when the winner of said Primaries almost always effortlessly won the GE afterwards), candidates occasionally were accused of effectively "making this race about race" - but the ones being accused were usually the hard-right-wing, conservative, KKK-backed, overtly racist ones... :S

The first release is finished in time for today's primary.

I will be updating this over time with new endorsers, events, what-if candidates, and improvements. And eventually post it on the campaigns page.

Of course. I'm updating it currently to make it more accurate - Hill normally gets destroyed thanks to Comstock's superior campaign. I'll probably add a "Donald Trump" issue that will give him a significant advantage in the Republican primary, and a disadvantage in the general election.

A "Mao" of NY14? I knew NYC is accused of being quite left-wing, but I didn't think enough so to warrant a "Mao."

Sorry, I'm awful at maps and the one I made for this already has several issues such as Manassas and Manassas Park being in the completely wrong locations and I neglected to put one of the weird parts of Fairfax as Prince William. And with the very small and specific scope of NY-14 I doubt I'd know what regions to include.
