A Message From Congressman Sarbanes

I am proud to be leading the charge in Congress to limit the influence of Big Money on politics and government and amplify the voices of everyday Americans. Whether it’s the economy, energy and the environment, health care or any other critical issue, special interests and well-connected insiders are calling the shots in Washington. We need to return to a government of, by and for the people. That’s why I’ve introduced the Government By the People Act.


  • Standing with Students for #NationalWalkoutDay

    A month ago today, Americans watched in horror as another deadly school shooting unfolded before us, this time, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people lost their life that day, the majority of whom were high school students.

    Once again, the Republicans are full of thoughts and prayers, but don’t have anything to say when it comes to real reform. Thankfully, the students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida have other ideas. They are turning their grief into anger and their anger into a cause.

  • I'm Running for Re-Election

    Last month, I made it official - I’m running for re-election.

    But it’s not worth doing unless I do it on my own terms. First and foremost, that means sticking with my pledge to not take a dime of PAC money. I’m the longest-serving PAC-free member of Congress in the country - this will be my fourth consecutive campaign where I say “no” to the PACs because I want to power my re-election with grassroots donors, not special interests.

  • October in Review

    It's been a very busy October here in Maryland's Third District. Here are a few photos from just a handful of events I've attended in a terrific first month of fall:


    My dad and I had the privilege of participating in a fundraiser for Emerge Maryland in honor of my dear friend Senator Barbara Mikulski at the historic Senator theater in Baltimore City.

  • Statement on Las Vegas

    Like all Americans, I am shocked by the violence that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night. My heart goes out to the victims of this despicable act, and I offer my sincerest condolences to their loved ones. We are so grateful for the countless individuals—both first responders and everyday citizens—who sacrificed their own safety to rescue others.  They represent the best of who we are.
