A news release later shared cleared things up.

“After prayer, soul searching and long deliberation, I am officially- -announcing my candidacy for Congress of the United States representing the 7th Congressional District today at 10 a.m. at 1505 N. Eutaw Place. After the Freddie Gray uprising, the proliferation of police brutality across this nation, the lack of jobs, widespread poverty and hopelessness throughout our urban areas, I decided that leading a successful congregation and building a great church is not enough. I want to contribute to public policy in Washington” said Jamal Bryant Candidate for Congress.

“I am running for Congress because I believe people who care can find solutions to even the most difficult problems. I have never run away from a challenge. I face them head on. I am running because when we work together, I know from experience that there is no problem we can’t solve. I am running for Congress because I know who we are and what we are capable of doing together for the 7th Congressional District”.
