TAKOMA PARK, Md. (AP) - Two women's groups are endorsing Delegate Heather Mizeur in her bid for the Democratic nomination for governor.
The Washington Post reports that the Maryland chapter of the National Organization for Women and the national group Feminist Majority endorsed Mizeur on Monday.
Mizeur, the only woman at the top of a gubernatorial ticket for governor in Maryland this year, has already won an endorsement from EMILY's List, a national organization known for helping female pro-abortion rights candidates raise money.
SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski is endorsing Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown to be the next governor of Maryland.
At a campaign rally Sunday in Silver Spring, Mikulski announced her support for Brown, a Democrat, and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman for lieutenant governor.
Mikulski cited her work with Brown to improve health care, reduce domestic violence and to spur job creation. In a statement released by the campaign, Mikulski says Brown is honorable, patriotic and willing to tackle tough issues.
