DC mayoral election results 2010: Vincent Gray beats Adrian Fenty
The Washington, D.C. primary featured a few interesting races, most notably the Democratic Mayoral primary where D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray defeated incumbent Adrian Fenty. As Paul Schwartzman and Nikita Stewart reported:
Across the decade in which he shot to the top of the city's political pyramid, Fenty relied on unrelenting energy and a well-honed internal compass - his gut - to navigate three elections and the often treacherous complexities of running a big city.
How Fenty came to squander that success and the goodwill that catapulted him to office is the story of a mayor who misread an electorate he was sure he knew better than anyone, who ignored advisers' early warnings that key constituencies were abandoning him, who shut out confidantes who told him what he did not want to hear and who began to listen only when the race was all but lost.
