Alabama State Legislative Elections 2014

I am currently working on 2014 Alabama State Senate and 2014 State House scenarios which took place during the trial of House Speaker Mike Hubbard and before Gov. Bentley resigned due to scandal.

Although the GOP will have a big starting advantage, I thought these would be some interesting races to simulate as the number of events surrounding the Hubbard scandal give the Democrats a good opportunity to capitalize.

For map purposes I have grouped the districts under their corresponding US House district and have included the following issues using the 2014 House additional parties scenario as a base; http://campaigns.270soft.com/2015/11/21/congress-2014-additional-parties/

  • Abortion
  • Corruption and Ethics
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Environment
  • Free Trade
  • Gambling
  • General Fund and Budget
  • Gun Control
  • Health Care
  • Role of Government
  • Same-Sex Marriage
  • Social Security
  • Tax Rates
  • Unions and Unemployment

Any Alabama/ State legislative hints/tips would be very welcome.

Thanks

I had done a Wisconsin 2010 State Senate election (and the State Senate Recall ones, separately), but by the original Congress Forever 2010 release, not Infinity.

I've done most of the Senate, I have put it on temporary hold while the new CI engine is under development.

No plans yet on other legislatures as I don't have much knowledge of their internal politics.
