"Richwig" correctly predicted the recall of both Democratic state senators in Colorado and pegged Public Advocate Bill de Blasio (39 percent) as the winner of the New York Democratic mayoral primary, with former comptroller Bill Thompson (25 percent) coming in second. That was pretty close to the final tally, which showed de Blasio winning with 40.3 percent and Thompson taking second place with 26.2 percent.

If you are "richwig," e-mail to claim your prize. You get a choice — either a “Politics and Pints” pint glass (warning, an image of The Fix's head is on the glass) or a signed copy of "The Gospel According to The Fix."
