Momentum building behind former Congressman
(RANDALLSTOWN – January 13, 2020) – Kweisi Mfume earned the endorsement Saturday of the Baltimore County West Democratic Club, one of the most coveted political endorsements in Baltimore County. The club is led by Senator Charles Sydnor and represents the communities of Catonsville, Owings Mills, Pikesville, Randallstown, Reisterstown/Glyndon, Windsor Mill and Woodlawn with residents in Maryland legislative districts 10, 11, 42 and 44B.
On Thursday, the historic Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Baltimore (IMA), a federation of clergy activists from across the Baltimore metro area, also endorsed former Congressman Mfume for the 7th Congressional District special election being held on February 4, 2020 to fill the seat vacated by the death of Elijah Cummings. The IMA is one of the most respected faith community organizations in Maryland.
Last week, Kweisi was proud to have received the endorsement of the Broader Representation Advocacy Team Political Action Committee (BRAT-PAC). The BRAT-PAC’s primary mission is to identify and support candidates who represent a new generation of progressive African American leadership in the public policy and legislative arena and who can bring fresh thinking, ideas, and solutions to problems that continue to limit the potential in African American communities while encouraging African American communities to remain actively engaged in the political process.
Mfume served 5 terms in the United States House of Representatives representing the 7th Congressional District and is a former President and CEO of the National NAACP. He is currently the chairman of the Board of Regents of Morgan State University, Vice-Chair of Research America and a former trustee of The Johns Hopkins University.
