D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray is running for mayor.
WASHINGTON (AP) D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty is getting more competition for his job.
D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray on Tuesday announced he would enter the 2010 mayor's race and filed papers that will allow him to raise money. There has been speculation for months that Gray would enter the race, as polls showed about 50 percent of Washington voters disapproved of the job Fenty is doing.
Gray is now the most recognizable name in the race after Fenty.
Gray's first challenge is fundraising. Fenty has $3.3 million on hand, according to a March report with the D.C. Office of Campaign Finance.
