“Lets hit the slopes!”s hit the slopes!”

This isn’t exactly news, but D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton kicked off her re-election campaign over the weekend. And according to the Hoya, she’s sticking to her mission, telling a crowd at Busboys & Poets: “Regardless of who controls [the country], this morning I am here to let them know they will not control the District of Columbia.”

Norton is being challenged by a Republican candidate  and a Green party candidate. DCist notes she hasn’t gotten less than 88 percent of the vote in any election since 1994.
