Have you looked over your sample ballot yet?  If you have, and you're a registered Democrat or Republican, you'll see you have a lot of choices to make in the upcoming primary election on April 26th.  Besides the Presidential, US Congressional and Senate races, 13 Democrats are on the ballot for Baltimore Mayor, a list that does not include incumbent Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake.  And for the City Council, nearly half of the seats are open, which is to say that the incumbent isn’t running for re-election.   Luke Broadwater covers City Hall for the Baltimore Sun.  P. Kenneth Burns is WYPR's political reporter.  They join Tom this morning to make some sense of some of the more than 100 candidates running for seats on the City Council.   

Audio for this segment will be available by noon today.
