Democrat Del. Dereck E. Davis, running for Maryland's 4th Congressional District, picked up the endorsement of a well-known Prince George's County councilman on Saturday as well as more than a dozen members of the General Assembly.
Davis, the chairman of the House Economic Matters Committee, locked down support from County Councilman Derrick Davis as well as Prince George's County Dels. Jay Walker, Angela M. Angel and Darryl Barnes, among others.
Nine of the lawmakers endorsing Davis serve with him on the powerful economic matters committee, which has broad oversight of the state's banking industry, business and utility regulation and economic development.
