Steve Kamp has a pretty good track record when it comes to California elections.
The Sacramento resident is a two-time winner ... of Capitol Alert's election contest, that is.
Kamp, a tax attorney at the Board of Equalization who dabbles in election law, was the top scorer in the June 5 primary quiz, correctly answering eight out of 10 trivia questions and election predictions.
Kamp tied another Alert reader for the top spot in November 2010, but he gets the latest prize -- a coffee shop gift card -- all to himself.
One other reader also scored 80 percent but failed to answer the tie-breaker query to compete for a win.
That was good news for Kamp, who predicted in the tie-breaker that U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein would win 60 percent of the primary vote.
That was a bit optimistic. Feinstein got 49 percent.
"I overpredicted her," he acknowledged Tuesday, saying that he should have given more consideration to the size of the 24-candidate field.
Still, given his interest and skill in trivia, has he ever considered making a run as a "Jeopardy!" contestant?
"I'm actually pretty good," Kamp said. "I actually may do that someday."
See the questions and the winning answers to this year's quiz after the jump:
1.) Former Assembly Speaker Bob Hertzberg created buzz when he considered entering the 26th Senate District race earlier this year. Who was the last Assembly Speaker to win election to the state Senate?
Frank F. Merriam (speaker 1923-1926), who was elected to the Senate in 1928. Hertzberg would have been the first speaker in 84 years to be elected to the Senate.
2.) Who was the last independent elected to Congress in California?
The answer we were looking for is William Kent, who was elected to Congress as an Independent in 1912. The progressive Republican, first elected in 1910, had changed his registration ahead of his run for re-election. We also gave a point for the 1922 election of Rep. Jack MacLafferty. His congressional biography lists him as a Republican, but one entrant produced a document compiled by the House Clerk listing him as an independent on a 1922 special election ballot.
3.) The child of a U.S. Supreme Court justice is running for office in California this year. Name the candidate and the district.
Michael Breyer, son of Justice Stephen Breyer, was on the ballot in the 19th Assembly District.
4.) Which newly drawn state legislative districts have the highest number of a.) registered Democrats; b.) registered Republicans; and c.) no-party-preference voters? (Each correct answer is worth one-third of a point.)
A: Senate District 9; B: Senate District 37; C: Senate District 11.
5.) The newly drawn districts sent some incumbent legislators searching for new homes. Name two incumbent Republicans and two incumbent Democrats who moved to be eligible to run for re-election in the district they wanted to seek.
There are multiple combinations for this one. Republicans include Ted Gaines, Dan Logue and Mike Morrell. Democrats include Betsy Butler and Richard Pan.
6.) Rep. Mary Bono Mack is one of at least two inked California Republicans serving in Congress. What does her tattoo depict?
A cross, according to Roll Call newspaper.
7.) Which "no-party-preference" candidate running on the June 5 ballot was recently registered as a member of the conservative American Independent Party?
We were thinking of 10th Congressional District hopeful Chad Condit, but we also gave a point for D'Marie Mulattieri, who ran in the 39th Congressional District.
8.) Prediction: How many state legislative and congressional districts will see two candidates of the same party sent to the November runoff?
At this point the answer is 28.
9.) Prediction: Who will be the top vote-getter in the 46th Assembly District?
Democrat Adrin Nazarian.
10.) Prediction: How many "no-party-preference" candidates will make it into the runoff in state legislative races?
Only one made it in state legislative races.
Tie breaker: What percentage of the vote will Democrat Dianne Feinstein get in the U.S. Senate race?
Right now, Feinstein is at 49.3 percent of the vote.
