LARGO, Md. — President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager has joined Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s campaign for governor of Maryland.

Brown announced Monday at a news conference in Largo that Jim Messina will help on all aspects of the campaign. That includes volunteer organizing and fundraising.

Brown also announced that he has raised $1 million since the end of the legislative session in mid-April.

Brown will likely be challenged for the Democratic nomination by Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, whose formal announcement is expected in September.

Montgomery County Del. Heather Mizeur also is planning to run. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger is considering a bid.

Maryland’s primary is nearly a year away in June.
