The Polls are Closed

Well, it’s 8pm and the polls are now closed in the District. In an hour, they’ll close in Maryland for the primaries there. It’s time to count the votes, time to determine the winners, engaging in that process known as representative democracy. This really is just the primaries, but for predominantly-democrat Washington DC, this is the final election. Candidates Fenty, Cropp, Johns, and Orange have completed their run, and I know that I will welcome the removal of all the campaign signs from all over this town and take it back to its pristine state.

Who won? We’ll know soon. Party on tonight, candidates.

Just one thought before we go to the results, I’d like to thank Adrian Fenty and his campaign for being the only campaign to treat us seriously. We were blown off or ignored by Linda Cropp, by Marie Johns, by Vincent Orange when we requested something as simple as 10 questions. I am deeply disappointed in each of their campaigns for ignoring us as a venue for voter education, and I hope that they will learn from this in their defeat.
