As Mayor Vincent Gray prepares to face a primary challenge in his bid for re-election as D.C.'s mayor, an NBC/WAMU/Washington Informer/Marist poll finds Democrats think the District is headed in the right direction.
Muriel Bowser has been endorsed by EMILY's List, Mayor Vincent Gray gained the support of the D.C. Building Trades Council, Vincent Orange claimed the backing of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, and David Catania got the support of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.
The race for D.C. mayor is heating up, as Councilmember Muriel Bowser picks up some big straw poll wins. The Washington Post's Robert McCartney discusses whether that offsets Mayor Vincent Gray's edge in campaign donations.
Even as many of the major candidates in this year's D.C. mayoral race pledge to close loopholes that give corporate donations outsized influence, much of the money being raised in this campaign comes from corporations out of state.
