It’s now official.
Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks (D) released a video Tuesday morning to announce her campaign for U.S. Senate.
The 52-year-old leader of the state’s second-largest jurisdiction joins two other well-known Democrats, Rep. David Trone (D-6th) and Montgomery County Councilmember Will Jawando (D), in seeking to replace longtime Sen. Ben Cardin, who chose not to seek reelection.
Alsobrooks seeks to become the first woman in the state’s Capitol Hill delegation since 2017, when former Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D) retired and Rep. Donna F. Edwards (D) lost in the race to succeed her.
Alsobrooks’ video (click here to watch), posted on Twitter at 9:04 a.m. amassed more than 3,200 views within an hour. It summarizes her background as Prince George’s County’s first woman ever elected as state’s attorney and the first woman and first Black woman ever chosen as county executive.
