D.C. Republicans in danger of becoming 'minor' party

Fenty write-in supporters make a statement

The die-hard supporters who urged voters to write in Adrian Fenty for a second term as mayor appear to have made their point loud and clear: This ain't "one city" yet. Unofficial election night returns show that 22.8 percent of...
