At-Large: Just In Case You Forgot Who He Was...
Few candidates are sitting in as sure a seat as at-large council Democrat Kwame R. Brown. His post is one of two at-large seats up for grabs today. Under District law, one of the two seats must go to a non-majority party. But given that Brown is the Democrat in an overwhelmingly Democratic city, he's considered by political observers to be guaranteed a return to the council.
That's left the other six candidates scrambling for the remaining seat: Republican Carol Schwartz, Republican Patrick Mara, the Green Party's David Schwartzman and Independents Michael Brown, Mark Long and Dee Hunter.
But Brown isn't one for leaving anything to chance. Check out the cardboard cut-out he did of himself with presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama. There are 10, according to his campaign. This one is outside the polling place at Edmund Burke School in Ward 3.
"It was just a creative idea to capture the moment," said Brown campaign manager Michael Price. "It's a historic election and a fun thing to do."
As it turns out, Brown called in to the D.C. Wire to report that the signs are quite popular. Someone walked off with one of the Obama cut-outs. They left Brown's image behind.
The signs, Brown said, cost about $80 each.
