In Charm City, almost none of the nail-biting turmoil of the national races: Democrats running to take or hold offices in City Hall made a clean sweep. Fairly early in the evening, Brandon Scott declared victory in the race for mayor, and voters gave Councilman Nick Mosby the nod to step into the job Scott will vacate, president of the City Council. We’ll ask WYPR reporter Emily Sullivan … and Lisa Snowden-McCray of Real News Network what’s next and what will be the impact of other choices the voters made.
