Perhaps Fenty, in not publicly conceding defeat or wishing his opponent well, is still relying on his gut. His gut may be failing him again, as criticism of his failure to concede grows. Fenty has said that he will not run on the Republican ticket or as an independent against Gray if he loses the race. If he fails to do the right thing — publicly admit defeat and wish Gray well — then his gut isn’t all that he will need to continue in politics, at least in this town.
