Alsobrooks Tells Supporters She’s ‘On Course To Win’ Democratic Senate Nomination

Janice Turner calmly walked toward St. John Baptist Church in Columbia ready to cast her ballot Monday during early voting in Maryland’s primary election.

Before the Columbia resident voted, she chatted with Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks (D) and received a lime-green Alsobrooks wristband. Turner gladly accepted it and strapped it around her left wrist.

“She already earned my vote,” Turner said as she walked to park her vehicle closer to the church entrance used an early voting center. “I liked what she did with Prince George’s County in terms of bringing new businesses and things like that.”

But there’s another important aspect for Turner: Alsobrooks is pursuing history and trying to become just the third Black woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate and the first Black woman to represent Maryland in that chamber.
