Congratulations, Mayor-Elect Vincent Gray!


    Congratulations to DC Mayor-elect Vincent Gray, who defeated Adrian Fenty in the Democratic primary yesterday, 53%-46%. Now, it will be interesting to see how Vincent Gray goes about bringing the city back together, and of course whether he decided to keep controversial Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee. On the latter question, Robert McCartney has some thoughts, with which I tend to disagree. Anyway, we’ll see soon enough.

    P.S. Also, congratulations to my friend Mo Elleithee, who served as a top communications and strategy consultant to Vincent Gray’s campaign. After a rough 2009 (McAuliffe and Deeds), Mo was due for a big win! 🙂
