Alexandria Mayor Euille announces write-in campaign

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille officially announced his re-election campaign as a write-in candidate during an event Sunday. 

Euille lost the Democratic primary in June to Councilmember Allison Silberberg by a little more than 300 votes. It was the first time Euille had been challenged in a primary since he was elected Alexandria Mayor in 2003.

During Sunday's event, Euille was endorsed by former Alexandria Mayor Kerry Donley, who also ran in the June primary.  

"I was born and raised here and I will not go quietly into the night – not when the jobs, the decent paychecks and the lifestyles of the people I love the most are at stake,” Euille said in a statement.
