Michael A. Brown Quits, Throws All Six Votes Behind Linda Cropp

The Post this morning announced that Michael A. Brown has left the mayoral race with just scant days before the election (Quitting on Friday before a Tuesday election?! Good God.) and has thrown all six of his supporters behind Linda Cropp. Brown is apparently pouty that Adrian Fenty was doing better in the polls, despite less experience and hair. It’s unknown at this point whether or not this is really just an excuse for him not to feel disappointed in his vote totals on Tuesday, or whether he really believes that Linda Cropp would be better than him.

Brown said yesterday, “It’s time to step back and move up somebody else. That’s what ego is all about, and that’s what caring for the city is all about.” So, um, Michael, why are you only stepping down four days before the election, instead of when it might’ve done some good months ago?

    Michael Brown made the right choice.

    Debates do not win elections, but after watching the George Washington University debate and listening to the WTOP debate, I was convinced Linda Cropp is the only mayoral candidate who is prepared to lead DC into a promising future and can win next week’s election.

    Cropp is by far more qualified to be mayor than Adrian Fenty – not because she is older than him, but because she knows what she is doing.

    That was a smart move by Michael Brown! Michael Brown’s endorsement of Linda Cropp Shows that the other candidates for mayor know that she is the only person who can lead the District into a prosperous future. I have no doubt she will win the election for mayor next week. Cropp is an innovator and a forward thinker. She has outlined a strong vision for change and opportunity. Mr. Brown has now reinforced this by bowing out of the race and throwing his support squarely behind Cropp for mayor. This election is just heating up.
