ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Del. Jon Cardin is scheduled to announce his plans about running for Maryland attorney general next week.
The Baltimore County Democrat sent out a news release on Friday announcing what was described as a major announcement in Baltimore on Monday regarding the race for attorney general.
Cardin formed an exploratory committee to consider running for the job late last year.
Cardin, who is the nephew of Democratic U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, joined the state House of Delegates in 2003 and is serving his third term.
State Sen. Brian Frosh, D-Montgomery, also is exploring a run for attorney general.
Current Attorney General Doug Gansler, who is in his second term, is expected to officially announce his bid for governor in September.
