Key Endorsements for Brown in Governor's Race, Democrat Announces for Attorney General
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Rep. Steny Hoyer and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller are endorsing Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown in his run for governor of Maryland.
Hoyer, the second-ranking Democratic leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, announced his endorsement along with the Senate president at an event in Waldorf on Monday, with another scheduled for Greenbelt.
Hoyer says he's proud to be partner with Brown to improve the state's economy and create jobs. He also commended Brown for his service as a colonel in the Army reserves.
Miller also noted the lieutenant governor's military service, as well as his focus on working to build a knowledge-based economy by supporting education.
Brown, a Democrat, is from Prince George's County. Both Hoyer and Miller represent districts that include parts of the county.
MD Attorney General
BALTIMORE (AP) - Jon Cardin is launching a campaign for Maryland attorney general.
The Democratic state delegate who represents Baltimore County and nephew of U.S. Senator Ben Cardin announced his candidacy on Monday.
Cardin says the state's next attorney general "must be aggressive enough and savvy enough to stay one step ahead of anyone seeking to harm our families - whether on our streets or in cyberspace." He says his experiences as a state delegate, attorney and father have uniquely prepared him for the job.
Cardin says he will be a strong voice for all Marylanders who traditionally have been the targets of injustice.
