Baltimore Democratic Rep. Kweisi Mfume won his bid for a new U.S. House term Tuesday against Republican Kimberly Klacik.
After winning an April special election, Mfume, 72, held on to Maryland’s 7th District, long represented by his late friend Elijah Cummings — and by Mfume for 10 years before that.
Mfume addressed supporters in Baltimore, saying voters had “spoken loudly and clearly” and that he would be an “independent voice.”
