Ana Sol for Delegate, 1998

Here's an odd one. School Board member Ana Sol Gutierrez first ran for Delegate in 1998 against a slate of incumbents. She lost that race, but was elected in 2002 and finished first in this year's primary. In her 1998 run, Gutierrez distributed the flyer below promoting her candidacy. The reverse side of the flyer reprints a column by none other than Blair Lee, who got into a spat with incumbent Leon Billings and actually urged him to drop out in favor of Gutierrez. It's not often that Ana and Blair are on the same side of an argument, so this is one for the ages.
