An announcement is supposed to be made this afternoon, and reports say that Kirsten Gillibrand has been selected. I’ll cash this out once Paterson makes an official statement.

Thanks for participating!

By “on” I mean at any point after midnight on Friday, the 23rd. So if the announcement is made on Saturday. I will cash out at “on or after 1/24/09” at $100.

What if the announcement is made on the 24th? Which stock pays?
