The mayor faces a long list of Democratic candidates for mayor:

There is one only Republican running for mayor, James Caviness, and one Libertarian -- Bruce Majors.
Questions remain about Gray's 2010 campaign, which has been the focus of a federal investigation for nearly three years. Four people who worked on the campaign have pleaded guilty to felonies.
