Primary Election Victory

TOWSON – U.S. Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement this evening on his victory in Maryland’s Democratic primary election for the third Congressional district:

“I am proud to serve the people of Maryland's Third Congressional District and I thank them for choosing me to be the Democratic nominee in the general election. One common refrain I am hearing from voters of all political stripes is that they are frustrated with the influence big money politics has on our democracy. I'm working hard to fight back against this influence and have introduced the Government By the People Act, which would create a new system that amplifies the voices of everyday Americans and puts the people's interests ahead of the special interests. It's time we restore opportunity and fairness for all by building a government that is truly of, by and for the people.”
