SOUTHERN MARYLAND NEWS — Three candidates vying for Maryland’s U.S. Senate seat stepped behind the podium Nov. 3 at the Elks Club in Cambridge to answer questions from local Democrats during the Eastern Shore Democratic Summit.

The candidates, Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, Telecom Executive Juan Dominguez and U.S. Rep. David Trone (D-Md., 6th) are all running in the 2024 election to replace U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who will not seek reelection.

West Point graduate and combat veteran Dominguez said his three priorities are fair and living wages, health care for all and debt-free college and pre-K for all Marylanders and Americans.

He said that while he might not be the most recognizable name on the ballot, he encourages voters to compare his resume and character to that of the other candidates.

“You’ll firmly agree that my military training, public service and business leadership accomplishments make me the most qualified candidate to be your next United States senator,” he said.
