Representatives for Sheila Dixon say the former Baltimore City mayor has not conceded the mayoral race to Catherine Pugh.

Dixon representatives said they plan this week to call on the governor and state prosecutor to look into what they're calling "irregularities" in last week's election in Baltimore.

On election night, Pugh, a state senator, won the Democratic vote over Dixon by about 3,000 votes.

Representatives for Dixon's campaign say there are about 10,000 votes -- provisional and absentee ballots -- that haven't been counted yet, and won't be counted until Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

On election night, shortly after Pugh gave a victory speech, Dixon spoke to a crowd of supporters, telling them she still had a future with the city of Baltimore. 

"I'm not through yet ... I'm going to be part of this city," Dixon said.
