WASHINGTON (AP) -- District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray says his opponents who are making an issue about the corruption in his 2010 campaign should articulate their vision for the city instead.

The Democratic mayor spoke at a news conference about his economic development agenda on Tuesday, one day after he declared that he's running for a second term.

Gray's 2010 campaign is the subject of an ongoing federal investigation, and four people who worked on the campaign have pleaded guilty to felonies.

He says he did nothing wrong in 2010 and that voters want to hear about the future. He says his policies have created jobs and spurred development that has transformed neighborhoods. He says if one of his opponents has a better vision for the city, that person will become mayor.
