  1. 2016 almost seems a bit premature. We have no clue about much of the map so the scenario requires countless assumptions. Like Nevada. Does Sandoval decide to run after acting like he won’t? Arkansas, does Bebe run? If he does, polling suggests he could very well win. Louisiana will almost definitely be an open seat or an election after a earlier in the year special election. Assuming Landrieu loses next month (which this game makes the assumption), Vitter would almost definitely run in 15 for Gov, if he wins (almost a given unless Mitch L. runs) we have an open seat/short election after 2016 special. Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin are very very likely to go blue almost regardless. Florida and Kentucky will depend on who runs for president. If Paul runs, he can’t run for Senate. In that case, there will be an open seat there as well. Ohio, we could very well see Portman get primaried out. Same goes for Arizona, if McCain doesn’t retire. North Carolina could very well mean Hagan runs against Burr. Alaska is the strangest of all. If Murkowski runs, she very well might be primaried out. She has always had negative approvals among republicans and positive ones among indies and Dems. This last cycle, she burned her bridges with Dems and many indies, so if she doesn’t win the GOP primary, running as a write-in again or just running as a third party, might mean this seat could flip. If Miller is the GOP nominee again, and Begich runs (maybe for payback?) in 2016, Begich most likely wins. If It’s a 3-way, Begich chances get even stronger. The scenario, as it sits is too premature at this point.

  2. @Aaron,

    Thanks for the feedback. Of course it’s early – the campaign will be updated as things develop. The basic structure helps to clarify things, though, and see what the Rep and Dem leadership are looking at.

  3. Also, looking through the XML file, it looks likes you have both Alaska Senate seats up. 53-47 and 60-40. The other states that have an election only have one race that isn’t 100-0.

  4. Actually, that looks to be the case with all states that had 2014 Senate races. So it appears that the 2016 scenario on election night runs both 2014 and 2016 at the same time.

  5. @Aaron,

    I’ll check the debates – thanks for this.

    Both Alaska Senate seats are included, but only one has an election. You can check this by clicking twice on Alaska, and then trying to click on Sullivan’s seat. The percentages in the XML files for any off-year seat shouldn’t make a difference.

  6. The game is incredibly hard on medium, so far I’ve spent almost all my money on attack ads (meanwhile the other party has only spent 5 million) and I am losing almost every state targeted badly. I don’t get it…

  7. I just got Congress Inifinty today and I am liking it. I’d like if there was a feature where you can’t create organisation strength if the election is too near like it would take you 15 days to upgrade your organisational strength but the election is less than 15 days away. This is a minor thing but something that will stop you from wasting CPs in the final days would certainly be a help.

  8. There seems to be a bug where if you click on a state during election night it will tell you that the % reporting is higher than it really is, even over 100%. I saw it in the House 2014 scenario.

  9. I’m getting the same error message as I did for PI while running Vista: Error reading StyleBook.ResourcesBin: Cannot create Direct3D device for ‘TCustomCanvasD2D’

    I’ve been visiting relatives this weekend who have a Windows 7 machine, so I downloaded the game on to theirs and I have had a chance to play it, it is absolutely fantastic!

  10. Hey I noticed one mistake in the 2016 senate elections the west virginia senate composition it has 2 democrats. The Republicans picked up one of there 8 wins in west virginia

  11. Another minor bug; I set ads, polling and spin strength to 1 and left ground at 3 but only one red bar shows up but then ingame it shows a red, an orange and a yellow bar like it should.

  12. @Will,

    Thanks for the feedback, and good to hear it’s working on a Windows 7 computer.

    For Windows Vista, I have had multiple people with this problem. I don’t know exactly what is causing it – that message is about something called ‘Direct2D’, and making sure you have the latest updates for Vista, including the Platform Update, is the only recommendation I can make at this point. If you have no other options and are unable to get the game working, please contact me by e-mail ( ).

  13. I’ve installed all of the latest updates for Vista, which included the Platform Update and I am delighted to say that the game is now working!
    I’ve just noticed that for the 2016 scenario, West Virginia is down as having two Democratic Senators, instead of one of each.
