Marilyn Mosby to endorse Donna Edwards for Senate

Mosby highest-profile African American official to back Edwards for Senate.

Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby will endorse Rep. Donna F. Edwards' bid for Senate, the campaign said Monday.

The endorsement, which the campaign said in a news advisory will take place on Tuesday in Baltimore, would represent the highest-profile endorsement she has received from an elected African American official to date. Most of the state's highest-profile black leaders have backed rival Rep. Chris Van Hollen.

Mosby is prosecuting the six police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray a year ago. Her husband, first-term City Councilman Nick J. Mosby, had mounted a campaign for mayor  but dropped out of the race last week.
