Dixon, Pugh Fighting To Finish Line To Be Baltimore’s Next Mayor

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a tight race between two women for the Democratic nomination to be Baltimore’s next mayor.

A new poll by The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore shows Maryland Senator Catherine Pugh and former mayor Sheila Dixon fighting for the top spot.

Political reporter Pat Warren talks to the top two candidates.

Former Mayor Sheila Dixon looks to make a comeback.

“I need your prayers, I need your votes, I need you all to tell five other people,” said Dixon.

State Senator Catherine Pugh, who lost to Dixon in a race for council president, looks to even the score.

“I think that the poll shows that across the board we resonate in almost every community in this city,” said Pugh.
