The Final (Really) Mayoral Debate

Remember when WUSA 9 called that screamy cross-talkathon they did Wednesday night the “Now or Never” Debate? Supposedly, that was because it was the last Democratic debate before the primary election. Well that may be technically true, but it wasn’t the last opportunity for the candidates -Democrat or otherwise – to make their pitch to the voters.

Last night, 6th & I hosted The Very Last Debate, moderated by WCP‘s Will Sommer, featuring Tommy Wells, Rita Jo Lewis, Vincent Orange, Andy Shallal, and Jack Evans. Cameo appearances were made by Muriel Bowser and Vince Gray, who showed up about 10 and 5 minutes before the end of things, respectively.

Your humble FishbowlDC editor was in the audience, tweetin’ away. Check out the blow-by-blow, in all its gory detail, after the jump.
