The D.C. elections board is taking its time in releasing returns, and general election revelry is the casualty. Take the election celebration of longtime at-large councilmember and write-in candidate Carol Schwartz. Supporters have been filing out of the party at campaign HQ at 12th and U Streets NW, reducing the crowd to a sparse 20 or so as of 10:30 pm. At the moment, Carol herself is hanging out with council colleague Phil Mendelson. When asked if tonight was a good night to be a Republican, Schwartz responded, “I don’t think so, but I hope it is for this Republican.”

No word yet on how Schwartz did in today’s race.
