Bowser Kicks Off Election Day With Early Morning Rally

photo (3)

Backed up by a DJ playing Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire," Muriel Bowser rallied her campaign workers in a lot near Nationals Park early this morning. Among Bowser's requests: Don't leave the polls early to go to the campaign party, and remember that we need general election votes, too.

"Everybody that's not with us today, well, they're going to be with us in November," Bowser said.

Adrian Fenty 2006 mastermind Tom Lindenfeld was on hand, pleased with the rally's timing ahead of early morning news broadcasts. Also delighting Lindenfeld in the predawn hours: Vince Gray's increasing focus on his bases in the eastern half of the city.

"He talked about One City," Lindenfeld says. "Now he's got less than half the city."

  • Pop M

    One City, One Mistake. One big shadow (campaign). Vote AGAINST Gray.

    It IS interesting that Vince has totally abandoned the rest of the city to focus solely on W7 and W8. I get that he's going "back to his base", but it does call to mind that the whole "One City" concept was a farce to begin with.

    Did Ghetto BowWowSer curse anyone out this morning?

    "Everybody that's not with us today, well, they're going to be with us in November," Bowser said.

    Don't count on it. The only reason I didn't vote today is because I am a registered Independent and can't vote in primary elections. Rest assured, come November this voter won't be along with "everybody" that she claims will be with her.

    This is the "returning citizen" CONvict that is supporting Bowser!

    Need I say more?

  • Roscoe’s Wetsuit

    Well DC Oracle, you could say more - like about the two convicted felons who raise money for Gray and support him (Jemal and Bereano), or the friends of Vince that are currently guests of the government (Harry Thomas Jr, Hawkins - although I think he might of gotten out, etc) and then there's Uncle Earl - so I can understand why you wouldn't want to say more.

    Although that I agree that Ron is a tool.

    Like Bowser was about to attend a fundraiser hosted by a guy who may have been involved in multi-million dollar shady CONtracts that resulted in millions of dollar$ of taxpayers money being TAKEN!

    Only when she found out the media was all over this did she cancel at the very last second!

    Bowser is a Fenty acolyte!

  • drez

    Vote Muriel, not that fake-ass facing federal indictments fraud.

  • Oliver

    The first step in electing Catania? Letting Gray win the primary...

  • asuka

    It's going to be great to see down-lo brothas like Noodlez and Tony whine for the next four years. Really, they'll be crying for as long as they live in this city, because Gray's loss and eventual imprisonment will represent the end of an era. Funny how they support multiculturalism until they actually get it.

    Now it's time to get rid of Evans for making a deal with Gray to torpedo Bowser's campaign by drawing her votes.

  • truth hurts

    Roscoe, you omitted Thomas Gore,Kwame Brown, Howard Brooks, Jeanne Harris, et al. How about posting that photo of the fab four? You know the one I'm referring to.

  • Southeast Ken

    I voted for Mayor Vincent Gray on March 20th at 441 4th Street, NW. Bowser is a non caring witch and I will never support this woman.

    truth hurts and drez a lovers and both are bitter human beings.

  • DC Oracle

    A vote/win for Bowser will undoubtedly lead to more CONtracts for "Mo More Moten."

    Say NO to CONtract fraud!

  • cminus

    Vote Wells! If he pulls off the upset you'll feel like a genius, and if he loses you can say "I told you so" whether the winner is exposed as an empty suit who can't govern or a future guest of the justice system.
