Edwards Defeats Loudon for Maryland's 4th District
Incumbent Rep. Donna Edwards won 75 percent of the vote against Republican Faith Loudon.
Democratic incumbent Rep. Donna Edwards won a resounding victory in Maryland's 4th District against Republican challenger Faith Loudon on Tuesday night.
Edwards garnered 75 percent of the vote while Loudon earned 22 percent as of 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
"I'm feeling really good," Edwards said. "I spent the better part of the day driving through Prince George's and Anne Arundel. I saw a lot of enthusiasm and good, long healthy lines."
The Pasadena Republican did take Anne Arundel County, but the majority of the 4th District lies in Prince George's County where Edwards won approximately 19 out of every 20 votes cast.
Loudon asked her supporters to pray for a Mitt Romney victory after conceding that she'd lost her own race.
"Our country is really concerned about how the election for president is going to come out," Loudon said. "When I went into this campaign, I knew it was going to be a tough one. Actually, it was impossible. But I did not want to let it go."
