Robert Stokes has withdrawn from 12th district city council seat race according to the Maryland state board of election site. This is big news because Carl Stokes is now the only person with the last name of Stokes on the ballot. This eliminates the possibility of last name confusion and makes it even harder for a challenger to defeat the incumbent. I wonder what made Robert Stokes withdraw from the race? He is the only challenger who has made such a drastic move.

Today at Artscape I ran into a few prominent politicians. I am tired now so I will leave you in suspense until tomorrow. Apparently I got into a "heated discussion" with one of them.
