Rep. Donna Edwards broke with the Maryland Democratic delegation to endorse John Delaney in the April 3 primary. Some Members of the House see a bright future for Edwards, who serves on the Ethics Committee and is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
“I won in a primary, so I understand primary fights,” Edwards said. “You do what you do and you move on, and I expect the same is going to be true for John as he wins and makes his way into the House.”
On that point, Cummings agreed.
“We’re a small delegation, and we realize we’ve got to stick together. Big time. No matter what,” he said. “And part of our success has been that. And I think all of us are big-picture people, including Donna.”
