Less than a day after the first debate between Rep. Shelley Berkley and Sen. Dean Heller, the first round of voting is over. And the winner is: personal injury attorney Glen Lerner.
The September edition of the Smithereens Caption Content started with a illustration of Berkley and Heller fighting on the road. After gathering entries and letting Sun readers vote, the winner is Todd Witteles, who submitted: "I guess we're going to find out in 10 seconds who Glen Lerner is voting for." His entry received more than 40 percent of the votes.
Congrats Todd. We'll send you an autographed copy of the cartoon in the mail.
The runner-up was user Kappaxi2, with "I'd hate to be the officer who has to figure out whose at fault in this one!" which got 22 percent of the vote.
User STARBEAMS came in third with 20 percent of the vote for "Honey, are they still doing that Cash for Clunkers thing?"
Jerry Greenberg took fourth place for "Looks like the wheels are coming off both campaigns!" with 11 percent of the votes.
And in fifth was James Taylor, who got 8 percent of the vote for "Guess they don't like speed limits any better than term limits."
Congratulations to all of the finalists and thank you to everyone who participated. We'll have another contest next month.
