You would probably end up getting the centre of each of the 2 parties
if you did that, so it defeats the idea of finding centerists to
cancel out the 2 party system.

You could split states into districts, if you wanted more than 1
senator elected at the same time.

Ofc, districting runs in gerrymandering problems.
