Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Maryland) will announce later today that she will run for the Senate seat being vacated by Barbara Mikulski (D). Fellow Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D) announced early last week that he would also run for the seat. This triggers a bruising primary battle that will no doubt see both candidate trout there progressive accomplishments in the U.S House.

Via Washington Post:

“Edwards has drawn early support from national progressive organizations, who helped her oust incumbent Albert Wynn in the 2008 Democratic primary and last week announced a movement to get her to run for Senate. But it remains to be seen whether efforts by groups such as Emily’s List and the Feminist Majority will be enough to offset an early funding advantage held by Van Hollen, a proven fundraiser who has $1.7 million in his campaign account.”
