Maryland Attorney General
About the Race
Montgomery State's Attorney Douglas F. Gansler defeated Baltimore lawyer Stuart O. Simms to be the party's nominee for attorney general.
Gansler and Simms battled over the seat being vacated by veteran Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. (Montgomery County Council member Tom Perez's name appeared on the ballot, but the state's high court ruled him ineligible to compete for the post.)
Republican Scott L. Rolle, the Frederick County state's attorney, was unopposed for his party's nod.
Length of term: Four years
