Washington, DC – DC mayor to discuss statehood on TV


District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser is making some appearances on national television to discuss her efforts to make the District a state. Bowser’s administration has been drafting a new constitution for what would be called “state of New Columbia.” On Tuesday, the D.C. Council voted to put a statehood referendum on the November ballot. If the referendum is approved, the District would then submit the new constitution to Congress, which could admit the city as the 51st state. However, Congress is not likely to take any action as most Republicans oppose the push for statehood for both constitutional and political reasons.
