Today, we continue our series of Conversations with the Candidates.  The general election is on November 6th, which is 56 days away.

Tom's guest is  Craig Wolf, the Republican candidate for Maryland Attorney General.  He is facing the incumbent Democrat, Attorney General Brian Frosh, who's held the seat since 2015.  

In the 1990s, Mr. Wolf served as a federal prosecutor in the Justice Department, and as an Assistant State’s Attorney and Senior Circuit prosecutor in Allegany County.  He also served as Counsel to the US Senate Judiciary Committee. 

As a businessman for ten years, he was the President and CEO of the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America, a position he left last June. 

At the age of 40, in 2003, in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Mr. Wolf enlisted in the Army.  He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal and the Bronze Star for his service during Operation Enduring Freedom.  He currently serves as an International Law Officer with the Civil Affairs Brigade.

Craig Wolf is 55 years old.  He lives in Howard County.  He and his wife Sally have two children in their twenties.
