The real winner was None of the Above, which beat Mayor Gray 26% to 24%.

The Post hid it by breaking the NOTA vote up into “no one,” “other,” “no opinion,” subcategories that themselves often outpolled most of the field. But added together they beat them all, including Mayor Gray.

As to fading into obscurity, the last time I ran for office in 2012 I won the Libertarians permanent ballot status so people can now register Libertarian and run in the first Libertarian primary, and get on the ballot without collecting 5000 signatures each. I have recruited 7 other Libertarians so far to run for a nearly full slate of offices. Our slate is the most diverse in DC, male and female, gay and straight, and not just black and white but black, white, and Asian. For readers who would like to keep up with our new and expanding activity, which looks like it might not get covered on this site, one campaign blog is at http://www.DCLibertarians2014.blogspot.com.
