Del. Melony Griffith To Run For Maryland State Senate

A powerful Democratic state senator from Prince George's County has picked up a primary election opponent.

State Del. Melony Griffith says she will run for state Senate that is currently held by fellow Democrat Ulysses Currie. Griffith has scheduled an October 15 announcement of her bid to represent District 25. She has served in the lower chamber since 1998, and recently was the chair of the Prince George's County delegation for two terms.

Currie is a former Senate Budget and Taxation Committee chairman. He was censured last year by the Senate for failing to disclose work for a grocery store chain that paid him about $245,000 over several years. He was acquitted of all charges in a bribery trial in federal court in 2011.
