Donna Edwards talks with Amy Goodman about her Congressional Primary victory over longtime Congressional Black Caucus member Albert Wynn for the seat in Marylands 4th Congressional district.
Edwards ran a grassroots campaign on an anti-war, and pro-accountability platform. The people of her district clearly wanted change. Some see her victory as a test for what may happen in other Congressional districts in November.
I wish other Congressional seats held by CBC members were in competitive districts. Unfortunately most CBC members are in safe districts, allowing them to continue their status quo politics without any consequences.
