City Desk just called Arthur Delaney to check in on his historic campaign for an ANC post in Cap. Hill. He is standing outside his precinct at Payne Elementary. It is 5:35 p.m.

Delaney has big news. His mom has joined his campaign!

“My mom is here campaigning with me,” Delaney says. “She voted for me over in a different SMD (Single Member District).”

And Delaney’s opponent? He’s nowhere in sight.

“I’m not sure where he is,” Delaney says.

I ask if he thinks his opponent is runnin’ scared. This is Delaney’s response: “He damn well should be. He’s in deep shit.”

We will be posting updates on Delaney’s ANC race throughout the night. Stay tuned.
