Sheila Dixon is Expected to Announce Write-In Campaign for Baltimore Mayor

Former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon, who narrowly lost the Democratic primary to reclaim her old job, is expected to launch a write-in campaign for mayor Tuesday — a move expected to shake up what’s been a relatively quiet general election race.

For months, supporters have urged Dixon to submit the paperwork for a write-in candidacy. Dixon has scheduled a news conference for 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Baltimore Board of Elections headquarters.
