James Carew Rosapepe is an American politician from Maryland and a member of the Democratic Party. He is currently serving in his 1st term in the Maryland State Senate, representing Maryland's District 21 in Prince George's and Anne Arundel Counties.

Background

Rosapepe was born in Rome, Italy. He was first elected to the Maryland House of Delegates in 1986, serving 2 full and one partial terms before being appointed as Ambassador to Romania during the Clinton administration. Upon his recall from Romania, Rosapepe was appointed to serve on the Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland. He left that board to run against incumbent Senator John Giannetti in District 21.

In the legislature

Rosapepe defeated the incumbent Senator, John Giannetti, in the 2006 election. Giannetti had been accused of being too conservative by many Democrats, specifically for his position against an assault weapons ban in Maryland. After his defeat in the primary election, Giannetti switched parties to run against Rosapepe as a Republican, and was again defeated. Rosapepe currently sits on the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee and serves as a Deputy Majority Whip.
