Angela Alsobrooks is expected to face Larry Hogan in the U.S. Senate race

0 Comments


Angela D. Alsobrooks overcame relatively low statewide name recognition and an opponent with deep pockets to emerge victorious in Maryland’s closely watched Democratic U.S. Senate primary, clearing the playing field for a contest expected to help determine the chamber’s balance of power in November.

Alsobrooks, 53, born and raised in Prince George’s, was the first black woman to be elected county attorney and later county executive. If she wins the general election in November, she will become the first Black person to represent Maryland in the U.S. Senate — and the fourth Black woman to join the chamber.
