Fenty Says He’s ‘the Underdog’
(Washington Post) — Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) said Sunday he’s “the underdog” in his reelection campaign against D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray but that he can still win the Sept. 14 Democratic primary.
Fenty said it is time for voters and the media to more closely scrutinize Gray, whom the mayor accused of numerous ethical lapses. A Washington Post poll published Sunday showed Gray with a 17-point lead among likely voters.
“People have asked tough questions of me for the past four years and, from what I can tell, we have answered all the questions,” Fenty said at a news conference at United Medical Center in Southeast. “Now, let’s see how my opponent does under the same types of tough questions.”
