Mayor to endorse Brown Monday

June 30, 2013|by Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will endorse Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's candidacy for governor Monday, according to a source close to the Brown campaign.

The mayor's support for Brown is no surprise, given Rawlings-Blake's close political alliance with Gov. Martin O'Malley, who has been an open supporter of Brown. But her support will add to the momentum Brown has built up since officially announcing his candidacy in May and adding Howard County Executive Ken Ulman to his ticket.

The mayor will announce her support for Brown Monday at the The Avenue Bakery on Pennsylvania Avenue. Her support follows that of U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, regarded as the most influential African-American office-holder in Maryland.
