Frosh launches campaign for Maryland Attorney General
By: Josh Altic
Annapolis, Maryland: Maryland Senator Brian Frosh (D-16) is launching his campaign for Attorney General today with an e-mail to his campaign supporters, pledging to be "the people's lawyer." In his email, Frosh wrote, "In a world where powerful special interests seem to get all the breaks, too many Marylanders feel like their voices aren’t being heard. They want to know they’ve got an advocate who will fight for them. They want to know someone has got their backs. That’s why, after much encouragement from Marylanders across the state, I’ve decided to run for attorney general.”
Frosh is the chairman of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee and has been considering running for statewide office for several months. Frosh will face a very crowded Democratic primary in June as at least three other candidates are considering entering the race. A week before Frosh entered the race, Delegate Jon Cardin (D-11) announced his bid for the Democratic candidacy and delegates C. William Frick (D-16) and Aisha Braveboy (D-25) are also interested in joining the race. Whoever wins the primary election will be running against the Republican candidate to succeed the current Attorney General Douglas Gansler (D), who is going to be running for governor in 2014.
