Church Announcement: Rev. Jamal Bryant Pulls-out of Congressional Race Against Rep. Elijah Cummings!
Reader's in a surprise move, the Rev. Jamal Bryant announced yesterday that he was dropping out of the race for Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings’ seventh district seat. Bryant, who is the pastor of the Empowerment Temple AME Church in West Baltimore, announced his intentions to run for Congress only eight days ago. At the time he said he was hoping Cummings would run for Barbara Mikulski’s soon to be open seat. Mikulski announced earlier this year that she was retiring. The Bryant announcement was quickly followed, however, by a Cummings announcement of his intention to run for re-election. Source:
