Washington Democratic Mayoral nominee Muriel Bowser smiles as she discusses the election day primary victory during a news conference at the National Press Club, on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, in Washington.

The list of candidates for D.C. mayor expanded last week when former council member Carol Schwartz announced she's getting into the race. She joins, among some others, Independent At-Large Council member David Catania, and Ward 4 Council Member Muriel Bowser, the winner of the Democratic Primary in April.

In the run-up to the mayoral election, WAMU Morning Edition host Matt McCleskey is sitting down for interviews with the candidates. In May he spoke to David Catania, and today he speaks with Democratic candidate Muriel Bowser about the campaign and topics including education, transportation, ethics reform, and the future of D.C. General.
