Maryland's largest state employees' union will throw its support behind Sen. Brian E. Frosh in his campaign for the Democratic nomination for attorney general.
AFSCME Council 3 will hold a rally Saturday in Baltimore to announce its endorsement of Frosh, a veteran Montgomery County lawmaker who heads the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.
The union chose Frosh out of a field of four Democrats that also includes, Dels. Aisha Braveboy of Prince George's County, Jon Cardin of Baltimore County and C. William Frick of Montgomery County. The council represents about 25,000 state workers and is known for following up its endorsements with money and organizational muscle.
Frosh previously picked up the endorsement of the state AFL-CIO.
