This Tuesday, District of Columbia Democratic, Republican and Statehood Green Party registered voters go to the polls in the congressional and council primary. Given how overwhelmingly Democratic the District is, several of our local races will be effectively decided then. (I'm supporting Cary Silverman, the challenger, for the Democratic Ward 2 council seat nomination.)
But this is the part I love: we vote for members of the Democratic National Committee and Democratic State Committee, too. The candidates are identified by slate, called respectively
- Obama for DC
- Obama for Change
- Obama's Ward One Democrats
- Ward 3 Dems for Obama and Change
Do you note a theme?
