Schwartz Concedes To Michael Brown
D.C. Council member Carol Schwartz, who waged an ambitious write-in campaign to keep her seat, conceded today. Michael A. Brown, her main competitor for an at-large seat that must go to a non-Democrat, handily beat her with a strong ground operation and endorsements from found council members, including the chairman.
Here is her statement:
"Having as many as 34,219 people write in my name, not even counting the absentees and those who did not connect the arrow, is heartwarming.
It's been a good run and I am glad to have run it. Those who stood with me from all political parties and from all walks of life are brave and loving souls, and I am grateful for their support.
I congratulate Michael Brown and wish him well."
