Reform Sasscer Movement is delighted that Anthony Brown won the Primary election. After being told he could not use NAACP logo during the campaigns, Mr. Brown acknowledged in an email to supporters that he did not have authority. Part of the issue was that Prince Georges county NAACP chapter and county Executive Baker had endorsed a different candidate (Mr. Glenn Ivey) leaving Mr. Brown and the rest of the candidates running for 4th congressional Seat in the cold. During the campaigns Mr. Ivey even raised more money than Mr. Brown and others due to all the endorsements. These calculated moves made the other candidates jealousy and nervous but strengthened their resolve. Mr. Brown had to secure a loan towards the end of the primary, a sign of commitment to the cause he belived in.
In any event, there is no doubt Mr. Anthony Brown is going to make a stellar Member of Congress who will work successfully both sides of the aisle in promoting and accomplishing an agenda that represents well the residents in Maryland’s 4th Congressional District.
We must also recognize the candidate supported by NAACP who came in second, Glenn Ivey, is one incredibly talented, committed and very special individual who might run for county executive in the future! We have no doubt that, now and in the future, Glenn will continue serving well Marylanders and the public at-large!
The same thing goes for the other candidates engaged in the race and incredibly talented individuals who include Mr. Warren Christopher, Matthew Fogg, Delegate Joseline Pena-Melnyk, and Terence Strait of the Democratic primary. The republican McDermott defeated Robert Broadus, Rob Buck, and David Therrien. They are all incredible individuals and citizens of the county.
Anthony Brown (D) will face George McDermott (R) and Kamesha Clark (G) in the general election on November 8, 2016. The primary elections took place on April 26, 2016.
Now, on to the General Election!
