Democrat Rep. Donna Edwards to Seek Maryland U.S. Senate Seat: WashPost

Sunday, 08 Mar 2015 10:17 PM

Maryland Democrat Rep. Donna Edwards is expected to announce on Tuesday she will seek the state's U.S. Senate seat held by retiring Democrat Barbara Mikulski, The Washington Post reported, citing two Democrats familiar with her plans.

Fellow Democrat Rep. Chris Van Hollen said last week he was running to succeed Mikulski in next year's election. On Friday, he won the endorsement of U.S. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid.

Edwards, 56, the first black woman to serve in Congress from Maryland, said last week she was "seriously considering" a run for the seat.

Other Democratic members of Maryland's House of Representatives delegation, including Dutch Ruppersberger and John Delaney, have said they are considering runs.
