Cummings thinking of running for Senate

I don't think this is a good idea he should stay in Congress and let Donna Edwards take that Senate seat http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/10/25/1439008/-MD-S-Rep-Elijah-Cummings-considering-bid-for-Senate

4. Rep. Cummings was the first to stand with us

...when our community was protesting the Iraq invasion. He came to the early organizing meetings and spoke to us. I'll never forget him for that.

He's also one of the most accessible pols I've had the experience of dealing with.

6. I'll send money to Edwards, Cummings is a DOMA yes voter and he's taken other actions I don't

 

care for in more recent years. Donna on the other hand I like a lot. Many straight people on DU are claiming that DOMA votes and attitudes are supremely important to them this week. Funny that.
