Kevin Powell Runs Again for the Towns Seat

kevinpowell Kevin Powell Runs Again for the Towns SeatEveryone’s favorite cast member of The Real World, Kevin Powell, is making another run for the 10th congressional seat in Brooklyn, currently held by Ed Towns.

Powell aborted a short-lived race in 2006, but is kicking off his current campaign with a music filled fund-raiser this Friday at Five Spot Famous Soul Food. (No RSVP required!) Powell, according to his site, already has a staff that includes a campaign manager and a "national finance director."

Last year, Charles Barron challenged Towns and came surprisingly close (considering the fact that a third challenger basically split the opposition vote) said he’ll run for Borough President instead.
