Attorney General Brian Frosh has received the Democratic nomination for Attorney General, having run for the position uncontested. He is currently serving his first term in this role.
Attorney General Frosh is the first state attorney general in Maryland to issue guidance prohibiting discriminatory profiling by law enforcement. He is well known for his reputation as an environmentalist. Prior to his current office, he served in the Maryland General Assembly for 28 years, including 12 as chairman of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, where he led the effort to pass tough gun safety legislation.
Attorney General Frosh will face Craig Wolf, the Republican nominee, in the general election.
MACo’s election coverage and analysis relies, as always, on unofficial results published by the State Board of Elections. Official results will follow, after a full accounting of pending ballots. Given the larger-than-usual expected number of provisional ballots (which would not be included in the unofficial vote total), readers are advised that any close unofficial results are subject to realignment in the days ahead.
