U.S. Rep. Albert R. Wynn (D) conceded a short ago after losing to Prince George's County lawyer Donna F. Edwards.
Wynn, who had served in the 4th District for eight terms, had been targeted by an aggressive advertisement campaign, funded in part with hundreds of thousands of dollars from national labor groups and liberal organizations. The effort apparently convinced voters that Wynn had fallen out of step with his overwhelmingly Democratic district during his 15 years in Congress.
The people-powered rebirth of the Democratic party continues. I had the pleasure of personally meeting Ms. Edwards a few months ago. She'll serve Maryland well and with distinction.
