Former Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards has set her sights on the top elected office in Prince George’s County for 2018.

WTOP reports Donna Edwards declared her candidacy yesterday to run to replace Rushern Baker III at the helm of the county government. Baker is the early frontrunner so far in the 2018 Democratic primary race for governor. He’s also reached his term limit in his current office.

Edwards announced her run yesterday online. Here’s a video she posted on Twitter:

Edwards’ competition is stiff. Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks is her top opponent, though state Sen. Anthony Muse and Paul Monteiro, an alum of the Obama administration, are also running.

Edwards memorably gave up her congressional seat to run for Senate in 2016, facing off against then-Rep. Chris Van Hollen to be the Democratic nominee who would go on to replace the retiring Sen. Barb Mikulski. She lost, and Van Hollen predictably was elected.

The primary for county executive elections is set for June 26, 2018.
