Hogan also reportedly opposed gradually increasing the minimum wage in Maryland to $15 and hour, which, at this point, is still not an adequate living wage.

But what of Alsobrooks and her policy ideas? What does her record as a county executive in Maryland say about the kind of Senator she would be if elected in November?

Well, let’s start with a little look at her background:

As executive, she secured investment to expand Metro service with the Blue Line corridor, whipped up state resources to boost local health-care access and championed efforts to relocate the FBI headquarters to Prince George’s, among other wins. She also oversaw the opening of several mental health facilities in the county, redirecting $20 million to build a behavioral health center in Lanham with funds originally intended for a new police training facility.

According to Alsobrooks’ campaign, she “will co-sponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act, a crucial step towards establishing federal legal protection for the right to provide and access abortion care,” on her first day in office if elected.

The campaign also lists agriculture as one of its top policy priorities and promises that Alsobrooks is “committed to ensuring our farmers and fishers, from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore, have the resources they need to cultivate and grow their business,” and that she will “strongly support nutrition assistance programs that ensure those in need have access to high quality, fresh food grown by our Maryland farmers.”

Alsobrooks is also promising major investments in education, the fight against climate change, racial equality and protections for the LGBTQ+ community, gun safety, healthcare, and immigration reform that doesn’t involve the constant dehumanizing of undocumented migrants that has become a staple in the Republican platform, especially with Trump at the party’s helm.
