A federal investigation didn’t stop Vince Gray from running for office last year, and it might not stop him next year. In an interview on WPFW, the former mayor didn’t take another election campaign off the table.
“I’ve ruled nothing out, ruled nothing in,” Gray said.
Gray, who has passed his post-mayoral limbo by doing house repairs and teaching a class on District history at Catholic University, could run in Ward 7 or at-large next year. Then, in 2018, Gray could have a chance to take back his seat as D.C. Council chairman.
“[Running for office] is not something that is even on my to-do list right now,” Gray told host Chuck Thies, who managed Gray’s failed 2014 re-election campaign.
This may seem crazy. But At-Large Councilmember Vincent Orange wouldn’t rule out a mayoral run back when that seemed nuts, too, and he ended up running anyway.
