Mayor Fenty Might Win Re-election After All!

Washington's young Mayor is in a neck and neck race with one of his elders, and the old guy looks like he's going to clean the young Mayor's clock on Election Day. 

But Young Mayor just got a huge boost!

The Washington, DC Association of Realtors just endorsed the old guy.  I just saw this commercial that WDCAR is running while I was watching the latest episode of "Mad Men".

Why, you ask, is this good news for Young Mayor?

Well, every candidate that WDCAR has endorsed for mayor for as long as I can remember has lost.  It's like if Realtors® like him, he must be bad. 

We'll see if the curse is still in effect.

It's almost like they really like Fenty, so they endorsed the other guy!

Thanks for the Monday morning laugh.  A good hearty laugh!  I am not up on DC politics as I moved out of Bethesda in 1999 but you have to laugh at the kiss of death resulting from an endorsement from those shifty Realtors!

So I'm guessing the candidate's aren't begging for WDCAR's endorsement given that historical tidbit.

Nina, it got so bad that, when a really wonderful candidate ran against Mairon Barry (this was after he got out of jail for being a bad actor), we endorsed him.  I was on my way to his Victory Party when my neighbor (who had been the good guy's campaign manager) knocked on my door to say it looked like the Victory Party was off.  I was totally stunned.  And at that point, I decided that if I ever ran for mayor, I would pray for WDCAR to endorse my opponent!

I will certainly be watching on election day. Wow, that is coming up really soon - seems like only yesterday that Obama was elected. Where does the time fly to???

That is a great story, Pat! I never understood how Marion Barry kept getting re-elected. I wondered what percent of residents actually went out and voted for someone else. It seemed there weren't enough voters who believed they could get better representation, and deserved it.

Pat -- I sooo hope you're right!  I was shocked to see the GCAAR endorsement of, ehm, Old Guy.  It seems like that guy (one of Marion Barry's buddies?) wants to turn around just about everything that made DC a better place in the past 12 years.  I'm with your neighbor!  Go Fenty!

Pat, as a member of the DC REALTORS RPAC Trustees, I just want to set the record straight that your comment about all of our endorsees losing in elections is not true. Many of our candidates over the years have gone on to win and provide significant contributions to our community and supported the goals of the DC REALTORS.

Dale, you are absolutely right.  I have corrected the post to clarify that I meant for Mayor.
