The Post reports that CD4 candidate Anthony Brown has endorsed Donna Edwards in the Senate primary.

Former Maryland lieutenant governor Anthony Brown on Monday endorsed the Senate campaign of the congresswoman he hopes to replace in the House.

“From her fierce advocacy on domestic violence issues to defending women’s rights, Donna has been a champion for Maryland women and their families,” Brown said in a statement.

Brown is the first candidate in the Democratic primary for Maryland’s 4th congressional district, centered in Prince George’s County, to endorse Rep. Donna Edwards, who currently holds the seat. Edwards is in a close race against Rep. Chris Van Hollen, from neighboring Montgomery County, in the Democratic primary for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D).

Joseline Pena-Melnyk also announced her endorsement of Edwards today as well.

I am proud to support Donna Edwards for the US Senate. For too long, Washington has been dominated by politicians who’ve never had to live paycheck to paycheck. Perspective matters, and as a woman of color, it is important to me that our voices are represented in the US Senate. Congresswoman Edwards and I have always put working families first–that’s why we stood up to the NRA and fought side by side to expand Social Security. I believe she will carry on Senator Mikulski’s legacy and make a real difference for the working men and women of our state.

Of the top three candidates in the CD4 race, only Glenn Ivey has not endorsed Edwards.
