- Linda W. Cropp - DC Council Chair, Cropp was considered Fenty's rival as the frontrunner for the mayoral primary, although Fenty took a lead in the polls about two months before the election.
- Marie Johns
- Vincent Orange, Ward 5 Council Representative
- Michael A. Brown, who consistently had trailed the pack in polling data, dropped out of the race September 8, and announced he was throwing his support to Cropp.
Republican Party primary
David W. Kranich ran in the Republican Party primary election. Albert Ceccone gathered signatures to run on the ballot as well, but after a challenge by Kranich, the District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics declared many of the signatures invalid. Consequently, Ceccone did not have enough valid signatures to appear on the ballot, and only Kranich's name appeared as running for mayor on the Republican primary ballot. Kranich received 65% of the vote.
Statehood Green Party primary
Chris Otten ran unopposed for the Statehood Green party's primary election. Otten received 50% of the vote.
