Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is engaged

As reported on the Reliable Source, Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Karmen Bailey Walker are engaged, his office announced Monday afternoon. The 49-year-old lawmaker — and likely Democratic contender for governor in 2014 — has been a single dad since his split from wife Patricia in 2008, midway through his first term. Walker, 52, is a director of government affairs for cable giant Comcast (but not a registered lobbyist in Annapolis, according to state records) and the widow of a Prince George’s County Fraternal Order of Police president, Cpl. Anthony Walker, who died in a 2003 car accident. They’ll get married in the summer of 2012 and “look forward to celebrating the occasion with all of our friends and family,” they said in a statement. Brown has two children, Rebecca, 16, and Jonathan, 10; Walker has an 11-year-old son, also named Anthony.
