Evans was first elected to the D.C. Council in 1991, and ran for mayor in 1998.

Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) will announce on June 8 that he's entering the D.C. mayoral race, making it a trio of legislators vying for the city's top office. 

Evans is the D.C. Council's longest-serving member, having been first elected in 1991 in a special election to replace John Wilson. This won't be his first run for mayor—he placed third behind Anthony Williams and Kevin Chavous in the 1998 Democratic primary

According to a tweet from NBC4's Tom Sherwood, Evans will launch his campaign at the corner of 14th and Q Streets NW, in the heart of the Logan Circle neighborhood. He'll be competing against colleagues Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) and Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6); Mayor Vince Gray hasn't yet said if he will run for re-election.
