Fix primary prediction contest comes to Colorado!

It's primary (and runoff) day in Colorado, Connecticut, Minnesota and Georgia today! (What would the Fix do without primaries to get us through the August doldrums?)

And, like (almost) all primary day, when voters vote we give Fixistas from around the country their chance to sound off too.

The marquee race of the day is in Colorado where appointed Sen. Michael Bennet (D) faces a stronger-than-expected primary challenge from former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff.

Romanoff, underfunded but with considerable strength among the party's grassroots, has risen rapidly in recent weeks -- fueled by an anti-establishment sentiment in the state.

Bennet's forces acknowledge a close race but believe the organizational strength of their campaign will deliver a narrow victory as a large majority of votes will be (and have already been) cast by mail.

(Make sure to check out the Denver Post's rundown of the Bennet-Romanoff race as well as the other primaries on tap in the state today.)

For today's primary prediction contest, we want to know the order of finish (with percentages) between Bennet and Romanoff. Offer your prediction in the comments section below. Since polls close at 9 pm in Colorado, any predictions made after that time won't count.

The guess that is closest to the pin gets an official Fix t-shirt and the undying adulation of Fixistas everywhere.

Predict away!
