This scenario is an updated/improved version of the 1980 scenario that comes with the President Infinity game. It was created by the Historical Scenario Commission on November 5, 2017. It can be downloaded here: United States Р1980 РVCCzar with endorsers

This scenario boasts more events, and includes the US Senators for every state. Additionally, the candidates have been adjusted for closer realism. A simulation party has been added so that you can “watch” the election. Other tweaks have also been made.
