This morning, reporters received a terse e-mail from the campaign of At-Large Councilmember Carol Schwartz, saying the loser of last week’s Republican primary is slated to make “an important announcement” at her campaign HQ at 1 p.m. today.

Could Schwartz be announcing a write-in campaign—-something she said last week she would not do? Could she be giving her farewell speech? Announce a challenge to the ballot results in light of the election-night irregularities?

Oh, the suspense! LL will be on the scene and will be liveblogging updates.

UPDATE, 1:10 P.M.: Carol has yet to enter the building. And no one here knows quite what to expect.

Update, 1:15: Write-in campaign! More to come.
