Anthony G. Brown's campaign for the open House seat in Maryland's 4th Congressional District announced the endorsement of seven Prince George's County officials on Wednesday.

Sens. Joanne C. Benson and Ulysses Currie, Dels. Carolyn J.B. Howard and Michael L. Vaughn, Prince George's County Council members Derrick Leon Davis and Karen R. Toles and Bladensburg Mayor Walter Lee James Jr. are backing the former lieutenant governor's campaign.

"Anthony's leadership will be critical to ensuring we bring a regional hospital to Largo and the FBI Headquarters to Prince George's County," Davis said in a statement.

Brown is running in a crowded primary field for the seat that will be left vacant next year by Rep. Donna F. Edwards, who is running for Senate. Other candidates include former Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey, Del. Joseline Peña-Melnyk, Warren Christopher and Terence Strait.

The 4th District includes portions of Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties and is widely considered safe for Democrats in the general election.
