Democratic Candidate for Annapolis Mayor?

For the second time, Zina Pierre is withdrawing her candidacy for Mayor of Annapolis. This time she personally announced the news in a Wednesday afternoon press conference. The stress of the campaign on herself, her business, and her family as questions continue to be raised as to her residency and her past debts, all were cited as contributing factors. So who will the Democratic committee select to run in her place? According to one source on the committee, the number of votes for each of the remaining candidates in the recent primary will be just one of several factors in the selection process taking place this Friday evening. After all, if Pierre had not been on the ballot, the distribution of votes may have come out quite differently. On the other hand, party regulars seem to think that if he still wants the nomination– the annointed candidate will ultimately be first runner-up and current county councilperson for the Greater Annapolis district, Josh Cohen. Whatever happens, this will be an interesting election. As Charles Green commented in a previous blog entry, "Even in small- town Annapolis, it seems, politics is not for the faint hearted!".
