Democratic Candidate Drops Out of Annapolis Mayoral Race

Play associated audio

Former White House aide Zina Pierre is dropping out of the Annapolis mayor's race for the second time, following questions about her finances.

Pierre won the Democratic primary by 127 votes last week. She would have been the first black mayor of Annapolis if she had won the general election.

But questions arose about her personal finances and residency. Her campaign announced abruptly that she had dropped out of the race. Then a day later said there had been a mistake and she was running after all.

Now, Pierre has left the race again, saying she doesn't want questions about her finances to be a distraction.

The Democratic party will choose a new nominee after a meeting Friday night.
