Gray to be sixth D.C. mayor

WASHINGTON, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Vincent Gray breezed to a mayoral victory in the District of Columbia Tuesday with only token write-in opposition, election results showed.

The Washington Post reported Gray had received about 18,000 votes, or 78 percent of those cast, to about 4,570 write-in votes.

It wasn't known how many of the write-in votes went to incumbent Adrian Fenty, who lost to Gray in the Democratic primary in September. Some supporters started the write-in effort on Fenty's behalf, the Examiner said.
