The Post kicks the official start of the next mayoral race (be it in 2014 or sooner) in a Sunday A1 story that says Muriel Bowser, Jack Evans and Tommy Wells are already "making overt moves" in preparation for the race. (Bowser's overt moves, according to the Post, are attending a Trial Lawyers Association dinner with a bunch of other pols and buying ads in the Current.) The Post also says that "speculation has also emerged about potential wild-card candidates" including Police Chief Cathy Lanier and U.S. Attorney Ron Machen. Speculation has emerged? Yeesh. [Post]
