The first African-American woman to win the Democratic nomination for mayor of Annapolis has decided to stay in the race. Zina Pierre narrowly defeated Alderman Josh Cohen in the Democratic primary earlier this month. Her campaign announced Friday she was dropping out for personal reasons. But now according to the Baltimore Sun, she's back in. Pierre says it's because she received numerous calls and e-mails from supporters. She says she's staying in the race to fight for them. Her campaign announced her withdrawal amid questions about personal financial problems including a foreclosed home, bounced checks and state liens for unpaid income taxes.
