    Local House Race: I'll take Kevin Boyd over incumbent Marlin Stutzman... People locally here can't stand Stutzman... He only took the seat due to Mark Souder resigning due to a sex scandal.
    Local Senate Race: Joe Donnelly over Richard Mourdock... Mourdock killed his campaign with his rape pregnancy "God intended it to happen" comment. Until then, it was a close race.
    Local Amendments: Only things on my ballot are to retain judges, all of which I will personally vote no for.

    Well, if Florida ends up in Romney's column, I'll have a pefrect Electoral College and Swing State prediction.

    Locally, I went 1-1... Boyd lost but Donnelly won... If I had to choose one of the two, I'd rather have it the way it went.

    Haven't heard anything on the judges results yet. Local news website is down currently.

    So what did I win?

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    Local Senate Race? Gillibrand
    Nothing... The only thing I could potentially miss is Florida, if Obama ends up winning the state.

    Did anyone else have what I had, with Obama getting Florida as well? Cause that would be the winner if Obama wins FL.

    Well, I said "well over 300".

    And, I had popular vote at 51-48. Final was 50.8-47.8.

    Well over 300 isn't a number, but Ill shoot some ZB's for the popular vote, that's well done.

    We might be waiting a while, from what I've read...

    Like I said, worst case, I only missed Florida (had it going Romney) but picked all of the other swing states correctly.

    Hell, you didn't even call the local races correct. I went 4 for 4. You owe me a concession speech.

    I concede nothing... The prize had nothing to do with local races...
