Incumbent Baltimore Mayor Wins Democratic Primary

Tuesday, 13 Sep 2011 10:28 PM

 

BALTIMORE — Incumbent Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has defeated five challengers in Baltimore's Democratic primary for mayor, a post she assumed last year after her predecessor stepped down amid scandal.

Rawlings-Blake's win on Tuesday makes her the heavy favorite in the Nov. 8 general election, which is seen as a formality in a city where Republicans make up about 10 percent of the registered voters.

She has been credited with guiding the city through crises ranging from snowstorms to budget gaps.

Rawlings-Blake became mayor last year when Democrat Sheila Dixon resigned after a conviction for embezzling gift cards for needy families and a separate plea for lying about gifts from her developer ex-boyfriend.
