A Democrat Senate candidate in Maryland, who has claimed she is “not beholden” to corporate interests or lobbyists, has reportedly received a wave of donations from lobbyists and other corporate officials.

Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks (D) has received more than $260,00 in donations from lobbyists for 2024, including those who represent fast food, pharmaceutical, aerospace, defense companies, big tech, finance, and telecommunications companies, according to an analysis of data from the U.S. Senate’s Office of Public Records conducted by Open Secrets.

The Open Secrets analysis of the data from the U.S. Senate Office of Public Records includes donations from lobbyists between January 1, 2024, and March 31, 2024.

Alsobrooks claimed in a post on X from April that she was not “beholden to large corporate interests” and was running to put voters first.

“I am not independently wealthy,” Alsobrooks wrote. “I am not beholden to large corporate interests like Big Oil, Big Pharma, or the Big Gun Lobby. I am running for Senate to reject big corporations and put you first.”

Among the lobbyists who were listed as having donated to Alsobrooks’s campaign was Christopher Randle, a U.S. Policy Director at Meta and a lobbyist for Meta. Donation records showed that Randle had donated $7,100 to Alsobrooks’ campaign.
