Mikulski to endorse Rawlings-Blake Monday
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will pick up another high profile nod Monday-- Sen. Barbara Mikulski is slated to endorse her in Canton, according to the Rawlings-Blake campaign.
Monday's event will mark the second high-profile endorsement for Rawlings-Blake in less than a week's time. Rep. Elijah Cummings offered his support for her campaign at a press conference in front of Mondawmin Mall Thursday.
Mikulski will offer her endorsement in front of the Can Company on Boston Street at 9:30 Monday morning, campaign manager Travis Tazelaar said.
The campaign season is kicking into high gear, as the September Democratic primary looms a little more than four months away.
Former city planning director Otis Rolley and Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors vice president. Joseph T. "Jody" Landers III have filed to run, and state Sen. Catherine Pugh, Councilman Carl Stokes and Clerk of Courts Frank Conaway are all contemplating a mayoral bid.
And rumors remain that former Rep. Kweisi Mfume, who spoke eloquently at William Donald Schaefer's funeral on Wednesday, will enter the race at the 11th hour.
