Who won the May 18 primary prediction contest?
It's been eight days since the May 18 "Incumbent Armageddon" primaries that saw Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) defeated in a Democratic primary, Sen. Blanche Lincoln (Ark.) forced into a June 8 runoff and House Republicans hopes of building momentum in the House dashed by a special election in southwestern Pennsylvania.
But, we have yet to declare the winner of our Fix primary prediction contest -- the one Fixista who came closest to predicting the outcome of the Pennsylvania and Arkansas Democratic Senate primaries as well as the finish in the Pennsylvania 12th district special.
Before we reveal the winner, who will receive an official Fix t-shirt, let's revisit the actual results.
Pennsylvania Senate (D primary)
Joe Sestak 53.9%
Arlen Specter 46.1%
Arkansas Senate (D primary)
Blanche Lincoln 44.5%
Bill Halter 42.5%
DC Morrison 13%
PA-12 Special Election
Mark Critz (D) 52.6%
Tim Burns (R) 45%
Demo Agoris (Lib.) 2.3%
And, the winner is....(drumroll please):
He (or she) missed all three races by just 5.9 total points -- an amazing performance. "Dganderson13" gets an honorable mention for missing the final results by just 6.1 points.
If you are "Politickr", make sure to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred mailing address and size so we can get the official Fix t-shirt out to you as soon as possible!
Didn't win? Never fear -- the summer is filled with primaries (and Fix primary prediction contests.)
With Felicia Sonmez
