All Election Day, you’re probably just sitting on your hands waiting for results to come in at 8 p.m.
Instead of wasting time by yourself, waste time with us.
My colleague Scott Lewis and I are having our second semi-annual Election Day bet.
We’re calling it Lewis-Dillon II: The Reckoning.
We’re predicting the results of nine city of San Diego, San Diego County and state races. This time we’re hoping you can play along, too. And there’s a free lunch on the line!
Here’s how to play. For each race we’ll lay out a candidate or a proposition and a percentage. You decide if you think the result will be “over” or “under” that percentage. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your picks if you want to play. We’ll sort it all out after Election Day.
1. Proposition A. San Diego County PLA Ban. 55.5 percent, Yes.
2. Proposition D. San Diego City Sales Tax/Financial Reform. 49.9 percent, Yes.
3. Proposition J. San Diego Schools. 58 percent, Yes.
4. Proposition 19. State Marijuana Legalization. 48 percent, Yes.
5. Proposition 23. State Global Warming. 47 percent, Yes.
6. San Diego Council District 6. Lorie Zapf vs. Howard Wayne. 51 percent, Zapf.
7. San Diego Council District 8. David Alvarez vs. Felipe Hueso. 50.1 percent, Alvarez.
8. San Diego County District 4. Ron Roberts vs. Stephen Whitburn. 54 percent, Roberts.
9. State Governor. Jerry Brown vs. Meg Whitman. 56 percent, Brown.
Scott and I bet a lunch on the results. Anyone who gets all nine races right will get a lunch on us (but with us).
For history’s sake, it should be known that Scott beat me by one race in the June primary. I hope he doesn’t forget that I’m from Philadelphia. Rocky lost to Apollo in Rocky I. He didn’t lose the rematch.
