The transformation of D.C. Councilmember David Catania from a Republican to an independent who claims to be more Democratic than actual Democrats continues. Facing an electorate that’s 75 percent Democratic, Catania’s mayoral campaign is offering campaign paraphernalia for voters whose party affiliation doesn’t match with their candidate choice.
Along with the “Democrats for David” signs above, Catania campaign manager Ben Young says the campaign is distributing “Democrats for Catania” bumperstickers.
“They’re going to go like hotcakes,” predicts Young. Young isn’t sure yet whether the campaign will take the slogan a step further and organize a group of Democratic Catania supporters, like they did for public school parents.
