    There are nine African Americans on the ballot running in compelling races on Tuesday. They are Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.), Baltimore Mayoral candidates Sheila Dixon, State Senator Catherine Pugh and DeRay Mckesson and congressional candidates Will Jawando, Glenn Ivey and Anthony Brown. There is also a interesting primary race between Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) and State Representative Dwight Evans for Pennsylvania's second congressional district.

    The outcomes of several of these races could be a signal that a new generation of African American elected officials is breaking though a generational ceiling, or the outcomes could be a sign that voters are choosing the status quo of established leadership.
