Ulman is running for Lieutenant Governor of Maryland on a joint ticket with current Lt. Gov. and 2014 gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown.[1][5] The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

Endorsements

The Brown-Ulman ticket has been endorsed by the following individuals and organizations:

Race background

Incumbent Martin O'Malley (D) is prevented by term limits from seeking a third consecutive term in office.

Current incumbent Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown officially launched his 2014 gubernatorial campaign on May 10, 2013. If he wins, Brown will be the first lieutenant governor and first African-American to be elected governor of Maryland since the lieutenant governor's office was created in 1970.[11][12] O'Malley, with whom Brown shared winning tickets in both the 2006 and 2010 elections, supports Brown as his successor.[13] Brown's lieutenant gubernatorial running-mate is Howard County Executive Ken Ulman.[2] Immediately after formalizing their partnership for the 2014 campaign, the Brown-Ulman ticket received the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). A number of Cumming's congressional colleagues announced their support soon thereafter, as well as influential labor union branches of the SEIU.[14].[15][16]

On July 17, 2013, another potentially history making candidate entered the Democratic primary field to give Brown some competition: Maryland House Delegate Heather Mizeur[17] If victorious, Mizeur will be the state's first female to hold the governor's office, as well as the country's first openly gay governor.[18]

Current state attorney general Doug Gansler is also seeking the Democratic nomination for governor in 2014. On Oct. 14, 2013, Gansler announced that he had selected Prince George County Delegate Jolene Ivey for his lieutenant gubernatorial running-mate. Keeping with the trailblazer theme established earlier by Brown and Mizeur to entice more progressive-leaning voters, the Gansler-Ivey ticket also carries the promise of setting an historical record, statewide and national. After joining Gansler's campaign, Ivey stated, "I am proud to be the first African-American woman to run for lieutenant governor, and when we win, to be the first Democratic African-American woman to be lieutenant governor in our nation's history."[19]

Ulman was elected to a second term as Howard County Executive in 2010.[3]

2006

Ulman was first elected as Howard County Executive in 2006. He with 52.1 percent of the votes he defeated Repbulican Christopher J. Merdon and C. Stephen Wallis.[4]
