Maryland’s 4th Congressional District, which Brown represents, is based in the eastern Washington, DC suburbs. While the boundaries will likely change in redistricting, it is expected to remain safely Democratic next year.
Before winning his first term in 2016, Brown was a state legislator and then Maryland’s lieutenant governor from 2007-2015. In 2014 he was the Democratic nominee for governor, but lost in an upset to Republican Larry Hogan.
Bruin, a veteran of the Army and Army Reserve, sits on the Armed Services, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Veterans’ Affairs committees.
“Met byna 3 decades as an attorney, and experiences ranging from a young lieutenant in the United States Army to a three-term member of the United States Congress, I know that as Attorney General you can either be a champion for progress or a defender of the status quo,” Brown said in a statement released on Monday. “Marylanders deserve a champion for progress. As Attorney General, I will be that champion and will never back down from a challenge.”
