Change Starting Stats
After creating a candidate in the game simply text edit the file created with the name of the candidate in the DATA folder of the game directory.
This is an easy way to alter starting money, the candidate's qualities, fundraising ability, home state or starting political party.
Alternatively, if you want to edit the candidates already created in the game edit the file called CoreCandidates.CANDIDATE in the DATA folder.
