One of the most interesting local elections in recent history, the DC primary took place last Tuesday, September 14th. Of 370,416 registered voters, about a third (125,847) showed up to the polls.
As predicted by straw polls and focus groups, Vincent Gray beat out incumbent Adrian Fenty to win the Democratic nomination for Mayor. Another notable victory was At-Large Council Member Kwame Brown over Vincent Orange for DC Council Chair.
