Even if the professional political-forecasting crowd didn’t have Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as the odds-on favorite to be GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s vice presidential pick, some Loop fans did.

We asked back in April for your predictions for who Romney would select. Lots of you figured it would be Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio or Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. We even got a few wacky dark horses (Ted Nugent or former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, really?).

But some of you correctly picked Ryan, including our winners, Kevin Sturtevant, a fund-raiser for a nonprofit from Silver Spring, and Howard Cohen, a public affairs consultant from North Hills, Calif.

Congratulations, and enjoy those coveted Loop T-shirts coming your way.
