D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray's annual State of the District address was supposed to happen tonight, but it is being postponed because of weather.
City officials have set March 11 as the new date for the speech, which is traditionally used to tout accomplishments and introduce new initiatives.
This year's speech comes less than a month before the April 1 Democratic primary, when the mayor will face seven challengers. A poll last week showed him leading the field, but with only 28 percent support.
As a sign of how political the speech has become, his main challenger for the city's top seat, Council member Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4), said she would deliver a response to Gray's speech — a first in D.C. history.
