Other people have brought up that I don't add primary opponents in my Senate race scenarios. That's because I don't want one of the candidates to pick a former rival of the nomination as their running mate. It would make sense for President or Governor but not Senator, they can't have running mates. So I have the state Republican and Democratic parties.

Now this really needs overhauled.

Given that this was one of the closest races in PA history, it really needs to be finished.

Democrats: Arlen Specter, Joe Sestak. Disqualified: Joe Vodvarka. Withdrew: Joe Torsella (Endorsed Specter), Bill Kortz, Doris Smith-Ribner. Possible fantasy rules toggle: Chris Matthews, Joe Torsella. It should be noted that despite Specter having a huge money advantage, and endorsements from almost everyone including Obama, Rendell, and more, Sestak won, despite originally polling at less then 20% when he entered the race.

Republican: Pat Toomey, Peg Luksik. Withdrew: Larry Murphy, Robert Townsend. Possible fantasy rules toggle: Tom Ridge, Glen Meakem, Jim Gerlach, Jane Orie.
