The Fix’s South Carolina special election contest winner!

There are actually two winners in South Carolina's special election.

One is Mark Sanford, who defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch by about nine points Tuesday in the 1st district. The other is Fix reader "thelibertarianhugh," who came closest to predicting the outcome of the race!

We received nearly a hundred submissions, none closer than "thelibertarianhugh," who predicted a 54.5 percent to 45.1 percent Sanford victory. Sanford won 54.0 percent to 45.2 percent.

If you are "thelibertarianhugh," send an email to chris.cillizza@wpost.com and we will arrange to send you a signed copy of "The Gospel According to the Fix."

Congrats and thanks to everyone who participated!
