Brown Wins Maryland Democratic AG Primary

  • Congressman Anthony Brown has emerged as the victor over former Judge Katie Curran O’Malley in the Maryland Democratic primary race for attorney general. Brown will face off against Republican nominee Michael Peroutka in the November general election.
  • The win positions Brown, a three-term congressman and two-term lieutenant governor under Martin O’Malley, to potentially make history as Maryland’s first Black AG if he is elected in November—an outcome that seems like a distinct possibility, as Maryland has not elected a Republican AG since 1954.
