Update: The Examiner says this is only a rumor. Oh, well. Next time, I will email/call the campaign first.
Big news, seeing as Wynn was in Mfume's corner during his run for the Senate nom. in 2006. What this means for Donna is a chance to pick up votes in Prince Georges county. Donna already has a solid base of support in Montgomery County, where in the 2006 primary she bested Mr. Wynn by a large margin.
|Edwards, Donna || || ||60.01%|
|Wynn, Albert R. || || ||34.56%|
|McDermott, George E. || || ||5.43%|
This was despite Mfume losing handily in the county to Ben Cardin. When we look at PG County, things get a little bit more interesting, and the possible influence of an Mfume endorsement becomes clear.
Here are the votes in PG County for Senator and Congressman for the 4th.
|Mfume, Kweisi || || ||70.18%|
|Cardin, Ben || || ||18.42%|
|Rales, Josh || || ||3.55%|
|Wynn, Albert R. || || ||56.89%|
|Edwards, Donna || || ||39.97%|
|McDermott, George E. || || ||3.15%|
With Donna's increased prescence and visibility, the Mfume edorsement could go a long way towards rearranging those numbers in PG county.
