Marion Barry wins 3rd straight DC Council term

Posted: Updated:

Marion Barry will continue to represent the District of Columbia's poorest ward on the D.C. Council.

Exit polling shows the former four-term mayor defeated independent Jauhar Abraham Tuesday. In the April Democratic primary, Barry beat four challengers with 72 percent of the vote.

Barry was convicted of a drug charge while serving as mayor in 1990. He served six months in prison. Two years later, he returned to the council, and in 1994, he was elected to a fourth term as mayor.

Three other incumbents on the council were also re-elected: Yvette Alexander, Muriel Bowser and Jack Evans. Alexander defeated Republican Ronald Moten, and Bowser and Evans were unopposed.
