Frick, Braveboy joining competitive field for attorney general in Maryland

September 19, 2013

The Democratic field for the next attorney general of Maryland is officially growing by two.

Del. C. William Frick (D-Montgomery) filed his paperwork with the State Board of Elections on Wednesday, and Del. Aisha N. Braveboy (D-Prince George’s) said she plans to file as a 2014 candidate by the end of the day Thursday.

Frick and Braveboy — who had been acting very much like candidates already — will officially join a competitive primary to succeed Douglas F. Gansler, who is running for governor next year.

Two Democrats have previously announced bids for the attorney general post: Sen. Brian E. Frosh (D-Montgomery) and Del. Jon C. Cardin (D-Baltimore County).

Frick, a member of the House of Delegates since 2007, said he would make a formal announcement about his campaign in coming weeks.

“I am proud of my work protecting consumers as a member of the General Assembly, and I am excited to build on our progress as attorney general,” he said in a statement Thursday.

Braveboy, a House member since 2007, said she plans a kick-off event in October.

“I’m all in,” she said.

No Republicans have yet announced for attorney general.
