The D.C. mayoral primary is two weeks away, and early voting began Monday.
In a Sunday night mayoral forum, three of Mayor Vincent Gray's opponents said they would retain their support for Gray should he win re-election -- but all seven were united in believing that Gray had full knowledge of the "shadow campaign" that funded his 2010 run, DCist reported.
Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), Vincent Orange (D-At Large) and entrepreneur Carlos Allen said they would support Gray out of party loyalty.
Gray was absent from the forum, which was held at the Black Cat on 14th Street. Nonetheless: "My first question is for Mayor Vincent Gray," News4's Tom Sherwood quipped while serving as a moderator.
Besides the scandal, the candidates talked education, marijuana legalization, and campaign contributions. The Washington Post breaks down where the six leading candidates stand on some of the most pressing issues.
The Washingtonian explained the evening's five major takeaways.
