Frosh Reveals Long List of Attorney General Supporters


Published:

State Sen. Brian Frosh (D-Bethesdsa-Chevy Chase) today announced a long list of Maryland Democratic heavyweights who will be on his exploratory committee for a 2014 run at Maryland Attorney General. The list of supporters includes County Executive Isiah Leggett, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, State Sen. Mike Miller, Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, former Governors Parris Glendening and Harry Hughes and former Attorney General Stephen Sachs. It does not include State Delegate Bill Frick, a fellow Bethesda state house representative who was rumored to be seeking the Attorney General seat on his own. Attorney General Doug Gansler is rumored to be targeting the Democratic nomination for Governor, leaving the seat open. State Sen. Jamie Raskin, of Takoma Park, was another rumored potential Attorney General candidate but has since thrown his support behind Frosh. Raskin and County Council members Roger Berliner, George Leventhal, Marc Elrich, Valerie Ervin and Nancy Floreen are also on the committee. "Brian's compassion, independence and integrity have been apparent to us in Montgomery County for many years. He has been the state leader on protecting our environment and ensuring that we have a fair and impartial judiciary that protects the rights of all Marylanders," Leggett said in the announcement on Frosh's website. "I am pleased to offer my wholehearted support to him in the race for Attorney General." Frosh is holding an Annapolis fundraiser in November he said will focus on his work on environmental issues.
