It looks like Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi will get a bit of a challenge after all. Terry Baum, a member of the Green Party, now expects to join young Republican Jennifer DePalma, as a contender against Pelosi in November. Baum's role in the race comes via a write-in campaign, the success of which she plans to announce Tuesday morning at City Hall. Baum, should the Elections Department indeed certify her victory, would be the first third-party write-in since a Black Panther slate did it in 1968, according to Baum's campaign. Baum, a lesbian, recently challenged Pelosi to officiate a gay marriage, with no response from the congresswoman.
