Antonio Hayes, a first-term state delegate from West Baltimore, says he’ll challenge Sen. Barbara A. Robinson for the seat formerly held by Mayor Catherine E. Pugh.

We have all been there before- listening to a politician make big promises that never seem to come true. Antonio is no stranger to that feeling. He grew up right here in West Baltimore, listening to those same promises that change was just around the corner. From the moment he began his career in public service, Antonio devoted himself to being a different kind of leader- one whose record of results speaks for itself.

When we struggle as a City, it is because our hardworking men and women are not always joined by hardworking elected officials who deliver results.
Del. Antonio Hayes (D), part of a generation of rising Baltimore city leaders, plans to announce Saturday that he is running for the state Senate seat now held by Sen. Barbara Robinson (D). Hayes will make his announcement on the 2500 block of Francis St. in the troubled Penn-North neighborhood – half a block from where he grew up.
