Former NAACP leader Kweisi Mfume on Monday announced his run for the congressional seat formerly held by the late Elijah Cummings.

Mfume, whom Cummings succeeded in Congress after Mfume assumed the NAACP presidency, launched his campaign with an event at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum.

“A month ago, I would have never imagined that I would be before you this afternoon in this capacity,” Mfume said. “A month ago, my dear friend Elijah was alive and well.”

Cummings died Oct. 17. Mfume said he was driven in part by a desire to finish what Cummings left undone.

“His memory and spirit to fight back and fight on is alive and well and here with us today,” Mfume told supporters. “I need you. I need you with me because like you, like you, all of us who believe in an American right to clean water, to clean air, to a good education for children no matter where their zip code or what their surname is.”
