West Virginia governor’s race prediction contest: We have a winner!
Tuesday’s special election for governor of West Virginia was a big win for Democrats.
But it was also a big win for one loyal Fix reader. That’s because he (or she?) predicted the exact percentages that each candidate would get.
Our winner, “terry37,” correctly guessed that Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) would beat Republican Bill Maloney, 50 percent to 47 percent.
Due to that Nostradamus-like prediction, “terry37” has won the most coveted prize of all: an official Fix t-shirt. If you are “terry37,” make sure to send an email to chris.cillizza (at) wpost.com with a mailing address and a preferred size for your t-shirt.
And kudos to “charri68,” who was just one point off on Maloney’s final percentage.
Didn’t win? Never fear. There are lots of elections — and Fix prediction contests — to come!
