Asked after the event why he was so far south of his home base, Barry said he had traveled to the city for a magazine interview Thursday. But when he learned about Clinton's plans to rally with Nunn, Carter and his "close friend" Young, Barry opted to stick around. He planned to fly back to the District on Friday afternoon.
Besides, Barry said, he voted early last Saturday for Muriel Bowser, the Democratic candidate for mayor, and for Karl Racine to serve as the District's first attorney general.
And will Bowser be able to beat back David Catania and Carol Schwartz?
"Oh, hell yes," he said, before walking away.
