    Anita Bonds won the D.C. Democratic Party vote Monday night to temporarily fill the at-large D.C. Council seat vacated by Phil Mendelson, who was elected chairman in November.

    Bonds will be sworn in at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday and immediately join the Council.

    A special election citywide will be held April 23 to permanently fill the seat. About a dozen candidates are expected to run in that race. Bonds will be among them.

    Monday night's vote was held on the campus of Catholic University in Northeast.
