Angela Alsobrooks

Maryland Senate Race

Angela Alsobrooks is the Democratic candidate for the Maryland US Senate seat. She is running against GOP Larry Hogan, a former Maryland Governor. This is an important, winnable seat for Angela. Raising Larry Hogan’s negatives will be very important to this race. This is how Angela describes her campaign:

A lifelong Marylander, Angela was born and raised in Prince George’s County. Angela was taught from a young age to care for her neighbors and give back to her community – urged on by the words of her great-grandmother not to sit on the sidelines but “go farther and do better.”

Angela heard an early calling to public service and after graduating from Duke University and the University of Maryland School of Law, she worked as a law clerk in the Howard County Circuit Court, and later the Baltimore City Circuit Court, before becoming the first full-time Assistant State’s Attorney to handle domestic violence cases in Prince George’s County. Angela held a variety of roles in county government before making history as the youngest and first woman to be elected Prince George’s County State’s Attorney.

As the county’s top law enforcement officer, Angela stood up for families, taking on some of Maryland’s worst criminals, while treating victims and the accused with dignity and respect. Under her tenure, violent crime dropped by 50 percent and she established a first-of-its-kind unit to investigate and prosecute police and official misconduct.

In 2018, Angela was elected Prince George’s County Executive, the first woman to hold the position and the first Black woman elected to the office of County Executive in Maryland history. She has focused on creating jobs and growing economic opportunity, investing in education and breaking ground on 10 new schools, expanding access to health care, mental health and addiction treatment, youth outreach and making sure people are safe.

Raising her own daughter in Upper Marlboro, Angela knows Marylanders should have a Senator who both fights for them and shares their concerns. Angela is running for Senate to be a voice for families like the ones she grew up with and who she’s worked for throughout her life.
