Muriel Bowser’s decisive victory in the District of Columbia’s Democratic mayoral primary makes her the presumptive favorite to become the city’s eighth mayor, but she can’t expect to breeze through the general election like Democratic nominees have in four decades of mayoral elections.

Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry said Mayor Vincent Gray should be re-elected because of his experience and track record, and he brushed off concerns about a federal investigation of Gray’s 2010 campaign, saying, “I know about how U.S. attorneys work.”
