Could Schwartzman pull an upset?

At-Large Council Race Gets Interesting

So how might election day play out? Schwartz is still plenty popular with the overall electorate, but she’s also a write-in candidate, and without the benefit of a really hard hitting, lengthy write-in movement, it’ll be tough for her to pull it out. That leaves Brown and Mara, who are both actually on the ballot, to fight it out for the seat. Unless…they split the vote and let Schwartzman sneak in with a super-minority share of the votes. This is about as close as the Statehood Greens will have gotten to elected office in quite a while, so they should be milking the Brown-Mara conflict for all it’s worth.

A Schwartzman victory would be a huge rejection of Fenty’s disaster capitalism.
