“Throughout my years of leadership in the Senate, I’ve focused on the needs of my constituents and our priorities in District 27. From education growth, to protecting our environment and the Chesapeake Bay, to helping more people receive healthcare coverage, and creating greater outlets and resources for small businesses, I’m proud to stand up for the needs of my constituents. I will always fight to deliver for Southern Maryland and protect our state from the damaging agenda of the federal government.”
