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.”
Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
