2 candidates enter DC mayoral race; Gray undecided

Posted: Updated:

The race for mayor of Washington is getting more crowded, with two new candidates entering the race -- neither of them the incumbent mayor, Vincent Gray.

A representative of D.C. Councilmember Vincent Orange picked up nominating petitions Friday to get his name on the ballot for the April 1 Democratic primary. Orange is the fourth councilmember to enter the race, joining Democratic colleagues Muriel Bowser, Jack Evans and Tommy Wells.

Also, restaurateur Andy Shallal tells The Associated Press that he will launch his campaign on Tuesday. Shallal owns the Busboys and Poets restaurant chain and has long been considering a run. He is a supporter of Gray and says he would not be running if Gray were in the race, but he's no longer waiting for Gray to decide.
