There have been several whispers about what’s next for Baltimore’s current mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake. Sources confirmed to Buzzfeed.com today that Rawlings-Blake could possibly be running for the soon to be vacated seat of Barbara Mikulski. This may come as a surprise to some as Rawlings-Blake has made no mention of running for senate.
The source told Buzzfeed:
“It is something we’ve all thought about — with Secretary Clinton being the top of the ticket, and the fact there’s very few people in Maryland that don’t believe Sen. Mikulski’s leadership has been anything but positive leadership for Maryland,” the source said. “There are a lot people who would like to see a woman succeed her. There’s a real … acknowledgement that women have been getting things done.”
