Maryland District 8 Democratic congressional candidate Will Jawando has landed the endorsement of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), whose robo-call will be going to over 40,000 households later this week.

Cummings says that Jawando, a former Hill staffer, is “the best candidate to get things done in Congress.” He credits Jawando for helping to pass the Lilly Ledbetter Act for equal pay while he was an Obama White House aide.

Here’s the full text of the call.

Cummings is starting to crank out the endorsements as the April 26 primary draws near. In recent days he’s come out for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Baltimore mayoral hopeful, state Sen. Catherine Pugh.
