Congrats to Ray Brennan and Ron Turner. With the concession of Rossi in Washington, Ray and Ron correctly picked every race. Both also predicted Murkowski in Alaska, which seems the likely outcome.

Having tied on the number of correct picks, we went to the tie-breaker. Ray predicted the GOP would pick up 54 seats in the House and Ron predicted 51. So the big prize goes to Ray.

Ray, if you’re able to contain your excitement, please drop us a note with your mailing address.

PDers, give Ray some PD love and offer hearty and horsey congrats.

  • Troy La Mana

    Congrats to Ray, but what if Miller does win in Alaska?

    • David Kaiser, Editor

      The only scenario that had anyone but Ray winning involved Murkowski losing and Murray losing. Since Murray has won, Ray wins. The only thing Ray gets with a Murkowski win is the satisfaction of having picked every race right.

  • Gary Russell

    Very impressive picking!

    Congrats Ray!

  • Stephen Fountain

    Congrats Ray, you da man! I think Ron should get an autographed copy of the Seventeen Second Miracle as a consolation.

    • Jason Wright, Editor

      I’ll agree to sending Ron a consolation prize if Fountain can answer a short quiz about the book.

    Harry Reid winning broke a lot of hearts, both for those wanted to see him lose, as well as those with hopes of winning the contest.

    Only 14% of the participates thought Reid could pull it off!
