BTW, can you please send me your issues.xml file for your Wisconsin Gubernatorial scenario? A lot of it may actually overlap with this scenario.

Sent, do you want to send the parties folder over and I can give you a hand on editing the candidates?

Sent!

Sent the file back. Could only make a few small changes (Party chairman & info, amount of money that each party starts with). I couldn't edit the political units or dates because it has to match exactly with the data you are changing in the other files (which I'm not aware of).

It's certianly a help, though. I'll look into the rest. I may have to bug you for party issue stances once issues are done.

I think your choice of issues for your Wisconsin Gubernatorial scensrio could work here, too. I'll fill in the issues you've left blank, and send it back to you (that'll save you some work, too). I just need to know a bit about the terms of the Recovery Act so I can make stances for it.

Can't find the stances on the recovery act. I would just put

Far Left- The recovery act didn't go far enough to create jobs.

Left- The recovery act was enough to grow our economy.

Center- No stance

Far Right- The recovery act was useless.

A question. Why did you do the Jobs issue as a reverse of stances of the traditional Outsourcing issue? I had thought the practice of outsourcing was traditionally supported by right-wing politicians and left-leaning ones were more likely to penalize companies doing so by removing tax incentives and such. Did Walker and Barret occupy reverse positions on the issue than were typical for their parties?

Prob made a mistake when copy and pasting the issues from one file to another. But to make a note on that, the question seems terribly biased. What politician (left or right) would admit to promoting outsourcing? Outsourcing is not a party issue, and is not supported by any party.

Would you like me to update your own issues file with Collective Bargaining instead of Jobs/Outsourcing and filling in the blank stance issues for your gubernatorial scenario?

That would be great, If you can. Have you moved on to the coordinates and percentages?

Not just yet. I still have a few issues to finish up.

I notice Ballotopedia's record of election results are in votes, not %'s. That means I'll have to do math involving cross-multiplying and such. :S

BTW, what should we do about Vittorio Spadaro, the only Independent canddiate in the Senate race, in District 13? He didn't win, but got over 6000 votes.

Could you put him in like a charlie crist or murkowski?

Here's a link (in percentages) for all the races, http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/105000829.html#statesenate

There's enough of toss ups to shift the power, so for Republican and democratic district where they hold 60+ vote do not have to be diluted for a competitive game...

I'm taking a quick guess here but I think the races not listed, did not have a challenger. From researching each district that did not have stats, the incumbent has been in office for 5+ years and represent very partisan districts. For example, a bulk of democratic districts not listed are in the milwaukee area and that is very democratic, not competitive. Just a guess..
