A new candidate got into the Baltimore mayor’s race on Tuesday. It’s already a crowded field on the Democratic side, but Alan Walden is running for the GOP nomination.
Walden formally filed his candidacy on Tuesday, records state. Walden is a former NBC radio correspondent, and hosted WBAL’s morning show for 10 years after being hired at the Baltimore station in 1988. His commentaries, called Walden Ponderings, continued even after he was retired from the anchor chair.
Walden told WBAL he plans to bring a message of hope, and is convinced they “are willing to listen to a new voice and a new message.” Republicans have a tough road in a city where Democrats outnumber Republicans 10:1. As of Tuesday, Walden will also face at least one opponent in the Republican primary in Brian James Vaeth, records state.
