Not all of Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown’s opponents in the Democratic gubernatorial primary have even officially announced their candidacy yet, and Maryland’s current second-in-command has just about shot the moon the with endorsements from the state’s top Democrats.
House minority whip Steny H. Hoyer, Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. Donna F. Edwards, state Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, and Gov. Martin O’Malley have all thrown their support behind Brown. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski added her name to the list at a rally on Sunday.
Mikulski characterize Brown as “a man of honor and a man of commitment,” and said he had the “the right stuff for the right time to do the right job that we need to have done.” Okay, Barb, but does he also have a good right hook, a solid record on civil rights, and an enviable collection of Righteous Brothers records?
But, no, seriously. What?
