Norton wins primary for D.C. delegate
WASHINGTON | Eleanor Holmes Norton has won the Democratic primary race for Delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives. The win virtually assures her an 11th term as Washington’s representative in Congress.
Winning an 11th term in November would make Norton’s tenure longer than Walter Fauntroy, the only other person to hold the position since it was reinstated in the 1970s. Norton still faces Republican and Green Party challengers in the November general election, but because three quarters of the city’s residents are registered Democrats, Norton is virtually assured the win.
With 28 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Holmes Norton had 23,631 votes, or 91 percent, compared to 2,259 votes for her challenger Douglass Sloan, 9 percent.
