He’s back!

Well, the voters have spoken, and Marion Barry is back in DC government, this time as the DC councilmember from Ward 8 (SE DC, and the poorest of the wards). Another notable upset is Kwame Brown beating out Harold Brazil for the at-large seat. Now, this was just the primary, but in the district, the democratic primary basically is the election, with the “real” elections only being a formality. According to that article I linked to, dems outnumber repubs in DC by nearly 10 – 1.
Good luck to the new city council. You’ll certainly have your hands full.
