On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
In what was a good day for incumbents, Washingtonians went to the polls on Tuesday to vote for primary candidates for D.C. Council, Council Chair, Mayor and non-voting Congressperson and Shadow Senator. Initiative 77, a contentious measure to raise the minimum wage for tipped workers, was also on the ballot, and it was passed by voters. We take a look at the election results and the low turnout numbers, look forward to the general election in November and explore where the local results fit into national trends.
