Hopkins Responds to MPW

Council District 1 candidate Ilaya Hopkins sent the following email to her supporters last night explaining her previous history as an unaffiliated voter and urging them to vote in MPW's poll on her race. Hopkins's email was remarkably effective in moving our poll from an early 80% advantage for Roger Berliner to more than 50% supporting the challenger before Berliner recovered. Now they're running neck and neck, which is really good for Hopkins.

Check this out.

Hopkins was not the only candidate to take an interest in the poll, which accounted for its movement.

Partially as a result of all of this attention, yesterday was the fourth most-visited day in the history of the blog. (Yes, it beat out the British Lucky Paul posts, but not the MACO drunks.) Thank you!
