Several other ward races are really not races at all.
Jack Evans, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the council, is uncontested in Ward 2. Muriel Bowser, Ward 4 Democrat, also faces no competition as her political star continues to rise.
And in Ward 8, “mayor for life” Marion Barry is expected to follow up his resounding victory in the Democratic primary with an easy win over independent challenger Jauhar Abraham, who also made his name in the District through the Peaceoholics organization.
Bruce Majors, an independent, and Natale L. Stracuzzi, a Statehood Green Party candidate, face an uphill battle to unseat Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, the District’s non-voting member of the House of Representatives who has served as the city’s “warrior on the Hill” since 1991.
