Don't count on a debate between Democratic mayoral nominee Vincent C. Gray and the write-in campaign for Mayor Adrian M. Fenty.
The candidate-less effort is pushing onward with Josh Lopez, a former ward campaign coordinator for Fenty, challenging Gray to debate the campaign.
"Who am I debating? The Web site?" Gray asked.
The write-in campaign, led by die-hard Fenty supporters and a self-proclaimed buzz, is trying to capitalize on voters upset by the resignation of Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee before the Nov. 2 general election.
Gray said he has asked Fenty to be more definitive in his lack of support for the write-in effort but said the mayor "considers himself having done that."
