Polls in Maryland’s US Senate race showed a dead heat for weeks—but in the end, it wasn’t even close. 

Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks cruised to victory over US. Rep. David Trone, netting a solid 54 percent of the vote despite being outspent 10-to-1 as Trone dropped $62 million of his own money in the race. 

But that’s not the only good news from Tuesday. 

With down-ballot victories by state Sen. Sarah Elfreth (MD-3) and April McClain Delaney (MD-6) in two open, safe Democratic seats, Maryland is on track to go from having nowomen in its Congressional delegation to having three.

Now the fight begins to make sure Angela beats former Gov. Larry Hogan in the general election. Even in blue Maryland, Democratic victory is not a given. General election polls show a close race with Hogan. Plus, last night’s other US Senate primary in West Virginia all but confirmed that seat is a goner, meaning even if all toss up races go Democrats’ way in November, the Senate will be 50:50. We need to win Florida or Texas to secure a solid majority. And of course, we need all of our incumbents to win for Democratic women to maintain our numbers. 

Let’s channel the energy of Angela’s victory to finally send more than one Black woman at a time to the Senate, save the Democratic majority, and protect women’s representation in Congress. Give now to each candidate on our 2024 US Senate slate.
