The job of Attorney General is a very important one. The AG is the state’s chief legal officer, and is essentially the people’s lawyer. The AG job can be a powerful one as well, as only three people have held the position over the past 35 years. Well-known and highly-respected Joe Curran held the job for twenty of those years, and has endorsed Brian. Curran’s immediate predecessor, Stephen Sachs, has also given the nod to Brian. (The current AG is Doug Gansler who is running for Governor.)
Based on what I’ve seen during the time I’ve spent with Brian, he is very well liked by people who know him. As a testament to that likeability – and certainly to his capabilities as well – Brian has received far more endorsements than any other candidate. The two largest newspapers in the region, The Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun, have both given him their thumbs up. The Post said, “ON THE merits, the three-way race in the Democratic primary for attorney general in Maryland is a slam-dunk” when they published their endorsement. Other endorsements include several Fraternal Order of Police lodges, Firefighter organizations, the Maryland Association of Realtors, and the Maryland State Education Association. A super-majority of Frosh’s fellow senators also endorse him, and scores of other elected officials are backing him as well.
Maryland’s Primary Election is coming up in less than two weeks (June 24th), yet a poll taken just this week shows that 40% of voters are still undecided as to who will get their vote for Attorney General. Mostly, that seems to be because few people know much about the candidates. I invite you to learn more about Brian by taking a look at his website.
