Jack Evans Launching Mayoral Campaign on June 8
The 2014 mayoral field just got a little more crowded. Following D.C. Council colleagues Muriel Bowser and Tommy Wells, Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans is set to announce his own mayoral campaign on June 8.
Evans will launch his campaign at the corner of 14th and Q streets NW in front of Logan Circle's new Le Diplomate restaurant at 10 a.m., he tells City Desk. The campaign plans were first reported by NBC 4's Tom Sherwood.
The image of Evans, a longtime champion of business, launching his campaign in front of a pricey French restaurant might leave something to be desired. Evans says his launch location is about the corner and not Le Diplomate—although, he concedes, it's a good restaurant.
