There's like...five New Jersey characters split amongs three players afaik.

The cap came in because we got way too many uber rich folks

Just 100 mil already makes you one of the richest people in Congress, so it's not really crippling

Governor in NY doesn't sound like a bad idea for a Dem


If I'm feeling real ambitious might try to make two new characters. Again, we'll see what happens.

I'd definitely suggest going slower than that.

You're right, I'll have to choose one - NY Governor or a state Rep/another Senator - then maybe another couple months create a new person once #2 gets settled and developed

Third party candidates winning gubernatorial elections is extremely difficult. We've already had one in the upper west that required a pretty twisting bio to make it feasible and it was of the Liberman style non nomination type. That guy has since switched to the GOP, the Libertarian party mostly burned out in the RP (There's a successor Liberty party trying to get its feet under it) so all things considered, not really an easy thing to pull off

Since no one else is around, I want to have Di Pietro negotiate with the Progressive leader.
