BALTIMORE (WNEW/AP) — Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will face Republican Larry Hogan in Maryland governor’s race in November, and state Sen. Brian Frosh won the Democratic nomination to face Republican Jeffrey Pritzker in the state’s attorney general race.
Brown defeated Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur for the nomination. Hogan — a real estate broker who served as secretary of appointments in former GOP Gov. Robert Ehrlich’s administration from 2003 to 2007 — defeated Harford County Executive David Craig, Charles County businessman Charles Lollar and Del. Ron George.
Brown’s victory puts Gov. Martin O’Malley’s partner of more than seven years up against the founder of a grassroots political organization from Anne Arundel County in November’s race for the job of Maryland’s chief executive. O’Malley is limited to two terms.
