Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks won the Democratic primary for Maryland’s open Senate seat yesterday, according to a projection from Decision Desk HQ. Via The Hill:

Alsobrooks beat out fellow Democrat Rep. David Trone (Md.) in what had become a tumultuous race. Just days earlier, an Emerson College Polling/The Hill/DC News Now found the two in a dead heat.

She will make history if she wins in November, becoming the first Black woman to represent the Old Line State in the Senate.

Alsobrooks is set to face off against popular former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) in the fall.

Yes, the polls had her in a dead heat. She won by 10+ points.
