State REALTOR® association endorses Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), four Democrats in June 21 Council primaries; DCAR backs Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and Brian Schwalb for AG 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The District of Columbia Association of REALTORS® (DCAR) has endorsed Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) for re-election, Brian Schwalb for D.C. Attorney General, as well as four candidates who are competing in primaries for the D.C. Council’s June 21 election. 

The selected candidates are: 

  • U.S. Congress – Eleanor Holmes Norton (D)
  • Mayor – Muriel Bowser (D)
  • Attorney General – Brian Schwalb
  • Council Chairman – Phil Mendelson (D)
  • Council At-Large – Anita Bonds (D)
  • Ward 1 – No endorsement
  • Ward 3 – Eric Goulet (D)
  • Ward 5 – No endorsement
  • Ward 6 – Charles Allen (D)

During the last four months, DCAR’s REALTOR® Party Action Committee (RPAC) Trustees have been interviewing candidates to understand their vision and priorities for Washington, D.C. The member-led committee met with 20 candidates vying to serve the community and was moved by the ideas the endorsed candidates shared.

This election is a watershed moment for the District. We are moving into an endemic phase of COVID-19, and we’re facing pivotal challenges as we emerge from the pandemic. The past two years deeply underscored housing’s fundamental necessity. Washington is one of the major epicenters of the housing affordability crisis; owning a home is becoming unobtainable for more and more District residents. Without a concentrated push to substantially increase housing supply, the American dream will continue to fade for many.

Additional details about each candidate can be found here.

This is the list of DCAR-endorsed candidates for the 2022 D.C. primary election.
