Today, we continue our series of Conversations with the Candidates: 2022 with the Democratic nominee for Maryland Attorney General.

Brian Frosh, the Democratic incumbent, will retire in January.

Tom had planned to speak with Republican nominee Michael Peroutka during the first half of the program today, but the candidate's office called to cancel his appearance an hour before our broadcast.

As a result, Tom's sole guest today is the Democratic nominee for MD Attorney General, Congressman Anthony Brown. He served in the Maryland General Assembly and then as Lt. Governor in the Martin O’Malley administration, from 2007-2015. He ran unsuccessfully for Governor in 2014, and he was elected to Congress in 2016.

He is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School. He is a decorated military veteran with more than 2 years of military service.

Congressman Brown is 60 years old. He and his wife are the parents of three adult children.

Rep. Anthony Brown joins us on Zoom at half past the hour (his interview begins at 21:25 into the posted audio file), following Tom's reflections on the Michael Peroutka candidacy and the upcoming elections.
