Out-of-state groups are pumping last-minute cash into the Maryland attorney general's race, fueling a barrage of campaign ads, including $240,000 in TV commercials purchased by a Florida-based fund that won't reveal its donors. The ads purchased by the Orlando-based Protecting Our Future Action Fund, which was formed Thursday, support Del. Jon S. Cardin of Baltimore County. State Sen. Brian E. Frosh of Montgomery County — considered Cardin's main opposition in Tuesday's Democratic primary — is also benefiting from outside spending.

Del. Jon S. Cardin, a candidate for attorney general, has accused two Baltimore lawmakers of intimidating a campaign volunteer and an anti-Cardin committee of violating campaign finance rules. In a letter to State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt over the weekend, Cardin accused Del. Maggie McIntosh and Sen. Lisa A. Gladden of "formal voter intimidation" at a North Baltimore early voting site Thursday. Cardin wrote that the two lawmakers told his volunteer to leave a polling station on East Cold Spring Lane because they "did not like an opponent of theirs to have representation at early voting.

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.

Before recording their votes in the upcoming Maryland primary elections, readers should study the records of the candidates for attorney general very carefully. I believe such scrutiny will lead to the inevitable conclusion that Sen. Brian Frosh is by far the best candidate for this important position ( "Frosh for attorney general," June 8). By virtue of his almost 30 years of experience as one of the most respected, effective members of the legislature with a long list of accomplishments, Senator Frosh can be trusted to continue Maryland's tradition of outstanding attorneys general.

A strong public school system is important, and I support politicians who believe and vote that way. That's why I am glad The Sun endorsed state Sen. Brian Frosh for Maryland attorney general ( "Frosh for attorney general," June 8). Senator Frosh went to Maryland public schools, as do his children. Throughout his 27-year legislative career, support for public education in Maryland has been one of his top priorities. Specifically, he worked to reduce tuition costs at Maryland's public colleges and universities.

Integrity. Honesty. Positivity. These are not words typically used to describe a politician. They are, however, how I characterize Jon Cardin. They are who he is as a person and how he conducts his campaign for attorney general of Maryland. We live in a "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" world in which a seed of a half-truth is transformed into a full-blown sensationalized story that's far more assumption and opinion than fact. It's sexy. It sells. It feeds the uninformed. It even fuels opponent campaigns.

When you think about it, name recognition in business and politics is really a double-edged sword. If the name is golden, or even brass-plated, it can open doors and take you places. But a widely recognized name can also cause people to question you harder - or in a different way - than they might a newcomer. They might even hold your name against you. Take Jon Cardin in the campaign for Maryland attorney general. With Maryland's primary election just two weeks from now, he's enjoying a fat lead in the latest Baltimore Sun poll over his Democratic primary opponents, Brian Frosh and Aisha Braveboy.

Two well-known U.S. Congressmen threw their support behind candidates for attorney general from their home counties Monday, with Dutch Ruppersberger endorsing State Del. Jon S. Cardin and John K. Delaney backing State Sen. Brian Frosh.  Ruppersberger, a Baltimore County Democrat, is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. "Cyber crimes are among the next-generation of issues with which our new Attorney General will have to contend," Ruppersberger said in a statement.

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.

State Sen. Brian Frosh questioned Baltimore County Del. Jon Cardin's fitness to be attorney general Friday, citing the endorsement of his Democratic primary rival by a local rapper facing human-trafficking charges. "At least one of my opponents lacks the rudimentary judgment required for holding the office of attorney general," Frosh told The Baltimore Sun's editorial board during a previously scheduled meeting. "Can you imagine the attorney general of Maryland putting his arm around a guy and saying, 'I'm proud to have his endorsement,' not knowing this person has just been charged with 22 counts of human trafficking and prostitution, facing 190 years in jail?"
