ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- State Sen. Brian Frosh says he will be announcing his run for Maryland attorney general.
The senator said he is officially announcing his bid in an email to supporters on Tuesday.
The Montgomery County Democrat has been a state senator since 1995. He has been the chairman of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee since 2003. The senator took the leading role in advocating for a sweeping gun-control measure in the Senate in the last session. He served in the House of Delegates from 1987 to 1995.
Frosh also says he has been a strong advocate for the environment and consumers during his time in the Legislature. The senator says he will bring those same qualities and commitments to the office of the attorney general.
