Partial Results: Brown and Brown in Lead for At-Large Council Seats

Democratic incumbent Kwame R. Brown and independent candidate Michael Brown have taken early leads in the race for two D.C. Council at-large seats tonight.

With 20 of the District's 143 voting precincts reporting, Kwame Brown was comfortably ahead of the pack with 18,200 votes, while Michael Brown was in second, with 7,560. Voters could select two candidates.

Republican Patrick Mara was third 4,900, while there had been 4,100 write-in votes. Republican incumbent Carol Schwartz, who lost to Mara in the primary, waged a write-in campaign in a bid to save her seat.

Kwame Brown is expected to cruise to a second term, while Michael Brown, who has lost races as a Democrat for mayor and a Ward 4 council seat, got late support from Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D).
