Candidate Details

Donna Edwards

Senate - Open

Rep. Donna Edwards was first elected to represent Maryland’s 4th Congressional District in 2008. A fighter with the record of improving the lives of working families, Rep. Edwards ran a strong grassroots campaign to win a special election in 2008 and become the first African-American woman in history to represent Maryland in the House of Representatives. In Congress, Edwards quickly developed a reputation as a progressive champion and has continually spoken out on behalf of the pro-Israel, pro-peace movement. JStreetPAC supported her in 2010 and 2012, both years in which she successfully headed off a prospective primary challenger, and again in her successful 2014 election. J Street is proud to place Donna Edwards ‘On the Street’ for her race to be the next Senator of Maryland.
