Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks has gained another high-profile endorsement in her bid for U.S. Senate.

Senate President Bill Ferguson (D-Baltimore City) publicly endorsed Alsobrooks during an event in Baltimore on Friday.

“I have watched and worked alongside Angela for years as she has navigated Annapolis and negotiated with lawmakers, as she advocated for common sense legislation,” said Ferguson. “I’m endorsing Angela because she has passionately fought for Prince Georgians as State’s Attorney and County Executive, and I know that as U.S. Senator, she will passionately fight for all Marylanders.”

Alsobrooks is one of several Democrats vying for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Ben Cardin.

Ferguson joins House Speaker Adrienne Jones (D-Baltimore County) in endorsing Alsobrooks.
