Fenty on Russert: “On behalf of the residents of the District of Columbia, I want to extend our deepest condolences to the family of Tim Russert. He was a gifted journalist and a guide to the American political system for millions of television viewers. He was also a District resident and fixture in the nation’s capital for decades. We were privileged to have him be a part of our community, and will miss him greatly.”
