WASHINGTON - District of Columbia voters have chosen D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson to continue serving out the term of former chairman Kwame Brown.
Mendelson, a Democrat, won a special election Tuesday, defeating frequent candidate Calvin Gurley.
Mendelson became council chairman in June after Brown pleaded guilty to bank fraud and resigned. Previously, Mendelson was an at-large councilmember. He'll continue as council chairman for another 2 years. The office is the second-highest in city government after mayor.
