Former Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has won the race for the Democratic nomination to run for Rep. Donna Edwards' seat in Maryland's 4th Congressional District.
Former Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey and Delegate Joseline Pena-Melnyk also had sought the nomination in Tuesday's primary in Maryland's Washington suburbs.
Edwards has held the seat since 2008, but decided to seek the Democratic nomination this year for the state's open U.S. Senate seat.
Brown loaned hundreds of thousands of dollars to his bid for Congress as he attempted to bounce back after losing the governor's race in 2014 to Republican Larry Hogan.
