TWiB! starts off the day with a discussion of the latest news and current events. They will be joined by Representative Donna Edwards, who is currently running for Maryland’s open Senate seat.
As Maryland’s first African-American woman elected to Congress, Rep. Donna Edwards will speak about her Senate campaign and her participation at this year’s Netroots Convention.
Donna Edwards is the first ever elected African American congresswoman from the state of Maryland, representing Maryland’s 4th Congressional District, including Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties.
Donna’s been a progressive champion for women’s reproductive rights, investments in historically black colleges and science and technology education, and standing up to anyone willing to consider cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
Now, Donna is ready for her next fight — to become Maryland’s next Senator and the second African-American woman ever elected to serve in the United States Senate.
