Fenty Running as a Republican Was Always a Myth

Although Adrian Fenty won the Republican primary for Mayor, it turns out that it was never going to be possible for him to run as a Republican, DCist reports. Even if Fenty had wanted to cross over to the other side, he would have had to have sold his soul to the Republican party by registering as a Republican before the primary. Fenty received 822 write-in votes.

It was only after it became apparent that Fenty could win the Republican nomination for Mayor that the DC Board of Elections issued a legal opinion that he couldn't run as a Republican. The full story is on TBD. At least the DCBOE didn't spoil all the speculation and fun before primary day.

Fenty may be returning to private life, but Michelle Rhee's fate is still undetermined. You can vote in our poll:  Should Michelle Rhee stay or go as DC School Chancellor?
