Baltimore Pastor Announces Bid for Congress

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A pastor who was highly visible during the unrest in Baltimore after Freddie Gray's death says he's running for Congress.
    
Jamal Bryant announced Monday that he will seek to represent the 7th District.
    
Bryant delivered the eulogy at the funeral for Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died after he was injured in police custody.
    
Bryant says a new generation must "deal with the ill effects of racism and sexism."
    
Democratic incumbent Elijah Cummings has been weighing a run for the U.S. Senate. But he said Monday afternoon in a statement that any assumption he won't run for re-election is "definitely premature."
