Anthony Brown didn’t get the top job in Annapolis. On to the next campaign…
On Thursday, the former lieutenant governor became the latest Maryland Democrat to jump in a 2016 race as a result of Barbara Mikulski’s surprise retirement. Brown will run for the Congressional seat being vacated by Donna Edwards, who announced this week that she’s aiming to end up in Senator Barb’s current chair when the music stops.
Brown made the announcement in a long message sent to supporters and posted to Facebook. He gave nods to his dedication to public service and all the supporters who asked him to run, but didn’t address why people should vote for a candidate who just suffered a brutal upset to a businessman who never held elected office in a mostly-blue state.
Brown will be vying to represent a district that includes Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties. Sounds like a simple enough area, right? Well, let’s go to the map:
- Station North has a new spot for food, music, and arcade games - January 10, 2020
- Baltimost: Brittany Young - October 8, 2019
- Public safety alert app Citizen launches in Baltimore - February 13, 2019
