Staff writer Jim Wise called it (in a column he wrote last night for tomorrow's Durham News). The Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People has endorsed Donald Hughes and incumbent Howard Clement in the Oct. 6 primary for Durham City Council.
Hughes, the son of former City Councilwoman Jackie Wagstaff, won the endorsement over incumbent Cora Cole-McFadden. (Cole-McFadden has the endorsements of the People's Alliance and the Friends of Durham.)
"In a very, very, extremely close race," Durham Committee Chairwoman Lavonia Allison said, Clement won the endorsement over Sylvester Williams. (Clement has been endorsed by the People's Alliance and the Friends of Durham.)
Look for Jim's take on the political season so far in tomorrow's Durham News.
