The mayoral primary in Washington is about a year away and the head of the D.C. Council says he's keeping his options open.

Toppling an incumbent mayor is never easy--especially when he's sitting on a $2.5 million re-election war chest. But council chair Vincent Gray says he hasn't ruled out challenging Mayor Adrian Fenty in next year's Democratic primary.

Gray says he's not in a rush to make a final decision. The primary is scheduled for next September.
