It's official: Orange running for council chair
Surrounded by about a dozen supporters and campaign workers, former D.C. Council member Vincent Orange Wednesday officially declared his candidacy for council chairman, the D.C. Wire reports.
Orange said chairman Vincent C. Gray's decision to run for mayor has created a leadership void and that he has the experience to fill it. He also questioned how his Democratic rival, at-large council member Kwame R. Brown, would be able to work with Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, with whom he has clashed.
