The nation is watching the mayoral race in Baltimore. In light of the prosecution of six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray and various economic challenges, the fight for who leads the city next is crucial. Current Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who also serves as president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, is not seeking the office again.
