WINNER UPDATE 1/4/21: After neither Trump nor Biden conceded as of December 31st, 2020 -- our selection of the 'President of Pete & Kelly' for 2021 has advanced to the random drawing stage.

All the major news outlets have declared Deanna Dingman of Foley as the official winner of P&K's presidential race. Deanna had originally chosen November 14th as the concession date (which didn't happen, but neither did any of the others).

UPDATE 12/15/20: There's no winner yet in Pete & Kelly's Concession Contest. We're all anxiously waiting to see who will become the President of Pete & Kelly for 2021.


The big 2020 election is coming up on November 3rd. We want to know how long it will take for the losing presidential candidate to concede. In fact, we've created a contest board where you can guess the date.

Does anyone think this thing will be figured out quickly, clean, and in an orderly fashion? Neither do we. So we asked listeners to pick a date on our 'Presidential Concession' board -- guessing which day the losing candidate will concede the election.

The winner will become the President of 'Pete & Kelly in the Morning' for the full 2021 calendar year. We'll have a swearing in ceremony in early January -- and the POPKINM will win a pair of tickets to every country show we get tickets to in 2021. (Which, depending on the pandemic, could be anywhere from awesome to nothing.)

Now we're keenly aware that a concession may never come, so if neither candidate concedes before the end of 2020, we'll draw a random winner. (Hey, maybe that's a good way to do it for the USA!)
