Benishek Staffer Wins Roll Call 2014 Election Contest


"I am incredibly surprised to get this email, since I never win contests," the legislative assistant for Rep. Dan Benishek, R-Mich., wrote to us, adding that he has lost "badly" in other picking contests such as March Madness brackets and fantasy football. To beat out the nearly 1,000 other completed entries, Stewart accurately predicted 12 out of 12 close Senate contests, and nine of the 10 House seats CQ Roll Call figured would be the most difficult to call. The 10th House seat, a final holdout in Arizona's 2nd District, might be Stewart’s one miss, but we will have to wait for a recount there to finish this month to be sure (Note: Stewart wins either way).  

What’s his secret?
