The Baltimore Building and Construction Trades Council threw its support behind Del. Aisha N. Braveboy Wednesday in her race for the Democratic nomination for attorney general. Braveboy, a two-term lawmaker from Prince George's County, is competing against Sen. Brian E. Frosh of Montgomery County and Del. Jon S. Cardin of Baltimore County in the June 24 primary. Her endorsement by the Baltimore building trades unions follows the decision last month of the Washington construction unions to support Braveboy.

It is a rare pleasure in any election year (and perhaps this one more than most) to have a candidate for state-wide office we can endorse so enthusiastically as we do Brian Frosh in the Democratic primary for attorney general. In his career in the General Assembly, he has distinguished himself as a considerate and effective legislator, and we have no doubt that he would excel as Maryland's top lawyer. Mr. Frosh has represented Montgomery County in the state Senate since 1995 and was in the House of Delegates for two terms before that.

Brian E. Frosh, a veteran state senator from Montgomery County who championed gun control and environmental protection, defeated two opponents to win Tuesday's Democratic primary for Maryland attorney general. Frosh, 67, who had trailed in early polls but was better-funded than his rivals, held a commanding lead over Baltimore County Del. Jon. S. Cardin - the nephew of U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin - and state Del. Aisha N. Braveboy of Prince George's County. After a concession call from Cardin, Frosh addressed supporters at the quaint Women's Club of Chevy Chase.

Towson lawyer Jeffrey N. Pritzker filed Monday to seek the apparently uncontested Republican nomination for attorney general. Pritzker contended that Democratic incumbent Douglas F. Gansler has “dropped the ball” in failing to protect Marylanders' rights on several controversial issues.  He said the state's lawyer should have sued to reclaim taxpayer funds spent on the botched rollout of the state's health insurance exchange.  He also...

Two-thirds of Maryland Democrats are undecided in a wide-open race to succeed Douglas F. Gansler as state attorney general, a new poll for The Baltimore Sun shows. Among Democrats who expressed a preference, Del. Jon Cardin of Baltimore County was ahead with 18 percent support. The other three candidates — state Sen. Brian E. Frosh and Del. C. William Frick, both of Montgomery County, and Del. Aisha Braveboy of Prince George's County — polled in single digits. All four names are unfamiliar to many voters — even those who follow politics closely.

Equality Maryland has endorsed Sen. Brian Frosh, a Montgomery County Democrat, for attorney general, calling him a "firm ally" of the state's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. "He has the maturity, experience and commitment to be an effective advocate for the LGBT communities of Maryland as our next Attorney General,” said Carrie Evans, Equality Maryland's executive director, in a statement Monday. Evans credited Frosh with helping secure passage this legislative session of the Fairness for All Marylanders Act, which prohibits discrimination against transgender people in employment, housing and public places.

An Anne Arundel County judge rejected yesterday a legal challenge to the eligibility of Montgomery County Councilman Thomas E. Perez to serve as attorney general if elected, saying the Democratic candidate meets the constitutional requirement of 10 years of legal experience in the state. Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner's decision concurred with a June opinion issued by Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr., whose impending retirement leaves the office without an incumbent for the first time in two decades.

The race to become Maryland's next attorney general started Monday as Del. Jon S. Cardin, a Baltimore County Democrat, became the first candidate to formally launch a campaign. Emphasizing what he promised to be the theme of his bid, Cardin announced his candidacy in a Web video. He said that because technology changes the way we interact, the next attorney general should be focused on protecting citizens in the Internet age. "We are living in a world that is complicated, and the challenges are going to be more and more complicated as we move along," Cardin said.

If state Sen. Brian Frosh has his way, voters will pick Maryland's next attorney general based on experience - his 28 years in the General Assembly, 11 of them as a committee chairman who pushed through measures such as the state's new gun control law. Del. Jon S. Cardin wants citizens to focus more on his vision for fighting cyber crimes - computer attacks he calls the law-enforcement issue of the future. And Del. Aisha N. Braveboy is hoping folks are concerned enough about social-justice issues to prefer her hands-on legal work to protect families from foreclosure and young people facing imprisonment.

Scammers targeting commercial property owners are claiming the businesses need to immediately pay a several-hundred-dollar charge to their electric utility, Maryland's attorney general warned Thursday. The scam is a variant of one aimed at residents. In this case, the callers pretend to be from Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., Pepco or other utilities and say the state is requiring a "GPS meter" be installed on all commercial properties, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler said in a statement.
