Ron Moten's Republican run
Ron Moten, former Democrat and co-founder of Peaceoholics, is running for City Council as a Republican in Ward 7 against incumbent Yvette Alexander. Historically Democratic Ward 7 is home to Mayor Vincent Gray and Council Chairman Kwame Brown. The odds are against Moten, but if he knows it, he's not showing it.
When you see former Peaceoholics co-founder Ron Moten around town, odds are he'll be sporting this DCGOP flag pin on his lapel. On Nov. 8, Moten filed his declaration of candidacy with the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics as a Republican. He's running for the Ward 7 council seat currently held by Democrat Yvette Alexander.
