WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- There is but one week to go before DC Democrats go to the polls to select their candidate for Mayor, a move that always leads to the Democrats winning in November in DC.
DC Council Chairman Vincent Gray is leading in the polls by 17 percent among likely voters according to a Washington Post poll.
On Tuesday he said complacency is his biggest concern and getting his people to the polls. Mayor Fenty who four years ago won every precinct is trying to cut into that 17 points by targeting undecided and soft voters.
If he can't expand the number of likely voters he's in big trouble of becoming a one term Mayor.
Critics say Fenty won 52 percent of the vote four years ago; but has failed to expand his base. Fenty landed the endorsement of the Examiner newspaper today. He already has the Washington Post endorsement.
Gray launched a website aimed at former Fenty supporters. He feels if he can add those numbers to his likely supporters, he'll become the next mayor.
