Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) officially kicked off her campaign for reelection last night at her annual Christmas Party in Oxon Hill. Edwards will face off against former Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Glenn Ivey of Cheverly and possibly a member of the county council of Anne Arundel County.
In the lead up to announcing her run for reelection, Edwards has been circling the wagons for what could be her toughest campaign since unseating Al Wynn in 2008 during the Democratic primary. During the last two weeks Edwards has been endorsed by party leaders such as Sen. Ben Cardin and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer. National progressive groups such as Bold Progressive PAC and the Sierra Club also have announced early endorsements for Edwards.
