End Gridlock vs. Blair Ewing, Council At-Large, 2002

This is an historic mailer. Shortly before the 2002 primary, the Washington Post published an editorial urging its readers to reject anti-ICC Council Member Blair Ewing and his entire slate. The End Gridlock team turned around this mailer in about 48 hours to finish off Ewing once and for all. It played at least a small part in helping challenger George Leventhal defeat Ewing for the fourth at-large spot by 1,140 votes out of a total of 356,988 at-large votes cast.
