Murray will win
When an incumbent runs in a crowded primary field, an inordinate percentage of votes are cast either for or against the record of the incumbent. [“Murray vs. McGinn: showdown ahead,” page one, Aug. 7.]
Accordingly, barring an egregious misstep between now and the day of the general election, Ed Murray is our next mayor.
As a Mike McGinn voter, I say this with no sense of satisfaction.
