The Fix’s May 20 primary prediction contest is here!

Voters are voting! That means it's time -- yet again -- for the single best thing this side of "Game of Thrones" and "Veep" on Sunday nights on HBO: A Fix prediction contest!

The rules are simple.  Give your best (educated) guesses for the races below.  Person closest to the mark -- in all three races combined -- gets their pick of an official Fix t-shirt or a signed copy of the "Gospel According to the Fix". (If you want neither of those prizes, I challenge you to a trial by combat.)  Here are the races (all predictions must be submitted in the comments section prior to 7 pm eastern time):

1. Kentucky GOP Senate primary. Predict the percentages for Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin

2. Georgia GOP Senate primary. Predict the percentages for the top three finishers.

3. Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial primary. Predict the percentages for Tom Wolf and Allyson Schwartz.

Get predicting!

Sanders’s claim that Clinton objected to meeting with ‘our enemies’
Sanders said that Clinton was critical of Obama in 2008 for suggesting meeting with Iran. In fact, Clinton and Obama differed over whether to set preconditions, not about meeting with enemies. Once in office, Obama followed the course suggested by Clinton, abandoning an earlier position as unrealistic.
