9-14-11: A Day for the Incumbent
“I’ve said it before, and will say it again: I love my home town!”
That’s what Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said to supporters in Baltimore last night. She won yesterday’s Democratic primary in Baltimore. Today, we take look at the results of that primary—which it appears, was a day for the incumbent. City Council President Jack Young was re-elected – in fact, all city council incumbents but one, Belinda Conaway, were re-elected.
Sheilah discusses the results with Adam Bednar, editor of the North Baltimore Patch, and Lester Spence, Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. He’s also the author of Stare in the Darkness: The Limits of Hip-Hop and Black Politics.
