D.C. Mayor Won’t Match Virginia Bid for Commanders Football Team

  • Bowser says Washington team is ‘priority’ but only for so long
  • Mayor’s campaign for third term focuses on crime, homelessness

Bringing the Washington Commanders football team to D.C. is a priority for the district, but not one big enough for its mayor to match the billion-dollar proposal Virginia has offered.

“At some point, I’m going to move on from it,” said Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser in an interview with Bloomberg News on Monday.
