Prior to that, Frosh served in the Maryland General Assembly for 28 years, including as chair of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee for 12 years. Frosh campaigned on consumer protection, public safety, and environmental issues. Frosh also highlighted his opposition to many of the policy positions of United States President Donald Trump and the legal challenges he has brought against the Trump Administration.
