Calling All Pundits

There are only 7 days left to submit your entry for the...

First Annual Regional Pundits Contest

The winner will get an official certificate, suitable for framing, declaring him or her a Political Pundit, First Class.

You will also win a $25 gift card to Borders.

To win, you must:

Correctly predict the winner of Pennsylvania's May 16th Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate by his percentage of votes, plus the percentage of votes tallied by his two rivals.

As a tiebreaker, you must predict the exact number of votes, rounded to the nearest hundred, that will be cast statewide in the race for U.S. Senate in the Democratic primary. (For the record, there are 3.8 million registered Democrats in Pennsylvania.)

Sample Entry:

Tom: I want to be a pundit!
Here is my prediction for the Democratic primary results:
Bob Casey Jr. – winner – 74% of the vote
Alan Sandals – 15%
Chuck Pennacchio – 11%
Total votes cast: 768,300

The deadline is 11:59 p.m., Monday, May 15th.

The winner will be announced on this blog at noon, Wednesday, May 17th. The vote total will be based upon the latest Associated Press count as of 11 a.m. that day.
