Congressman David Trone Launches Campaign for U.S. Senate

May 4th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Congressman David Trone announced that he will be a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat that Cardin currently holds.



“Ben Cardin has been an outstanding public servant for over five decades, dedicated to getting results for Maryland. Marylanders need a Senator who will build on his legacy of legislating with tenacity, integrity, and a commitment to delivering for Maryland families rather than just playing political games,” said David Trone.

“Marylanders need real solutions now, because we face major challenges — and the clock is ticking. Opioids and substance use disorders are crushing families and communities. A mental health crisis, especially among our children, has left too many who need help struggling to find it. And it’s getting harder and harder to pay the bills on an honest day’s work. Our criminal justice system is broken. Big pharmaceutical companies are jacking up prices. Access to abortion is under attack. And MAGA extremists threaten to tear down our democracy. 

“That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate: to work with Marylanders, to take on these challenges, and to take the bold steps necessary to make real change. Because this is not about me — it’s about the issues that are facing our state. 

“That’s why I’ll be traveling across Maryland talking to everyone I can, hearing from experts, and spending time with people who face these challenges every day. But I’ll tell you who I won’t be talking to: the special interests, lobbyists, and corporations. I’ve never taken a dime of corporate PAC or lobbyist money – and I never will.

“This is no time to sit on the sidelines. The challenges we face require bold solutions, but together, we will fight for change and deliver real results for Maryland
