The Maryland League of Conservation Voters released its first statewide endorsement of the 2014 election season Friday, putting their support behind state Sen. Brian Frosh's bid for attorney general. The environmental group's endorsement is prized among Democrats and carries weight on an issue most primary voters consider a mainstream value. In endorsing Frosh, the group called him a "long-time environmental champion" and noted he received its top marks for legislation he supported during his more than two-decade career in public office.

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.

State Sen. Brian E. Frosh, a veteran Montgomery County Democrat known for his work on gun laws and the environment, announced his candidacy for attorney general Tuesday, saying he wants to be "the people's lawyer. " "In a world where powerful special interests seem to get all the breaks, too many Marylanders feel like their voices aren't being heard," Frosh wrote in an email to supporters. "They want to know they've got an advocate who will fight for them. They want to know someone has got their backs.

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.

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.

Del. Jon S. Cardin and state Sen. Brian E. Frosh briefly shook hands Monday night. But that's where the niceties ended. In front of a packed audience at the University of Baltimore School of Law, the leading candidates for the Democratic party's nomination for attorney general got downright hostile. Frosh, of Montgomery County, accused Cardin of missing a large number votes in the General Assembly and associating with a rapper facing human trafficking charges. Cardin, of Baltimore County, accused Frosh of working against anti-child predator legislation and trying to implement an "Orwellian" bail system in which a computer decides a prisoner's freedom.

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.

Del. Jon S. Cardin leads the Democratic field in the race for Maryland attorney general, but the contest remains far from settled because of a striking number of undecided voters and a well-funded challenger who is gaining ground, according to a new poll conducted for The Baltimore Sun. The campaign to succeed attorney general Douglas F. Gansler appears to be the most volatile statewide contest in the June 24 primary. It possesses an unusual dynamic - Cardin, of Baltimore County, leads despite having far less cash on hand and fewer high-profile endorsements than state Sen. Brian E. Frosh of Montgomery County.

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?"
