Torricelli’s bad investment

Former U.S. Senator Bob Torricelli’s horse in the race for Mayor of Washington, D.C. won just 31% of the vote in yesterday’s Democratic primary. City Council Chairman Linda Cropp, who received a $3,000 campaign contribution from Torricelli’s still-massive ’02 re-election campaign fund, lost to Adrian Fenty, a 35-year-old City Councilman who is widely expected to become the capital city’s next Mayor.
