Here is your chance to prove that you are the wisest of the wise -- or at least as sharp as Chris Condon, who won my Fabulous Primary Prediction Contest.
I have selected 20 contests. All you have to do is go through and pick who you think will win each one.
As a tie-breaker, guess what percent of the vote former Governor Mitt Romney will receive IN MASSACHUSETTS.
As you'll see, this time I've assigned point values to the different races. So, math will be involved in determining the winner. But you don't have to worry about that now.
Send in your predictions BY TUESDAY OCTOBER 23, which is one week from today and two weeks before the election. You may leave them as comments to this post, or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (I can keep your identity secret if you wish, if for example you don't want it known you are picking against your boss....)
The winner will receive something that I abscond with from an election-night party -- and, more importantly, bragging rights.
