Rawlings-Blake to take leadership post at DNC
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will become the secretary of the Democratic National Committee on Tuesday, giving the scion of one of the city's most noted families a prominent role in national politics.
The move, which has not been announced, will give Rawlings-Blake a voice in the party's national political apparatus at a time when President Barack Obama is beginning his second term and several Democrats -- including Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley -- are jockeying for the nomination in 2016.
Rawlings-Blake, 42, has served as Baltimore's mayor since 2010.
