Ike Leggett likes the odds of the Purple Line being built. So much so that on Kojo Nnamdi’s weekly Politics Hour today, he predicted the likelihood of the Purple Lone going forward at 90%.

Despite the Purple Line’s uncertain financial future, County Executive Ike Leggett Friday said he’s “90 percent-plus” certain the 16-mile light-rail will be built “in a reasonable period of time.”

Leggett made the prediction on Friday’s Kojo Nnamdi radio show after politics analyst Tom Sherwood asked him to put a percentage on the likeliness of the project getting built.
