The parents of a D.C. mayoral candidate were victims of a burglary by a man who posed as a cable company employee.
Gym rats have found their fitness champion in D.C. Council member David A. Catania, who announced a plan Friday to scrap the proposed "yoga tax."
Democrat Muriel Bowser has the upper hand against her opponent in the D.C. mayor's race, collecting $858,000 during the latest reporting period, according to campaign finance statements.
Former D.C. Council member Carol Schwartz announced Monday she will run for mayor as an independent — an unlikely bid after five years out of office that has another candidate suggesting the move is a ploy to play spoiler.
Here comes Carol Schwartz. A Republican who reminded D.C. voters that trash-and-garbage pickup is not a partisan issue.
Contenders in the D.C. mayor's race are scheduled to file financial statements Tuesday providing the best clues yet as to how competitive the election will be — and whether donors in the heavily Democratic city are tapped out after a bruising and expensive primary campaign.

The District of Columbia's Democratic Party says Mayor Vincent Gray and D.C. Councilmember Muriel Bowser will be attending a breakfast intended to promote party unity.
Reeling from allegations by federal prosecutors that he knew about the dirty tricks that helped him get elected four years ago, District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray tried to rally his base. But his core supporters weren't nearly enough, as a scandal-weary electorate rallied behind a much-younger challenger who promised honest and ethical leadership.
The District of Columbia's Democratic mayoral nominee says she's taking nothing for granted as she prepares for the general election and that the party needs to come together to ensure her victory in November.
Two D.C. Council members will face off in an unusual contested general election for mayor in November, giving the candidates seven months to try to re-energize voters, who appeared apathetic and turned out in small numbers for Tuesday's primary election.
Muriel Bowser's decisive victory in the District of Columbia's Democratic mayoral primary makes her the presumptive favorite to become the city's eighth mayor, but she can't expect to breeze through the general election like Democratic nominees have in four decades of mayoral elections.
"Thankfully, both of my parents are safe, although a bit shaken," Ms. Bowser said. "This just goes to show that we all need to stay vigilant and ask for identification when someone we do not know, or did not expect, knocks on our door."
D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser, the Democratic nominee for mayor, has also said she opposed the fitness tax.
