Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman Brian Frosh announced this morning that he has formed an exploratory committee to help him determine if he should run for Attorney General in 2014.
The committee includes a long list of impressive names, including two former governors, all six Baltimore City senators and the county executives from Montgomery and Prince George's counties -- the two largest in the state.
“These are people I greatly respect, and having their advice, support and endorsement means a great deal to me,” said Frosh, a Montgomery County Democrat. “I will continue to consult with, and seek the opinions of, knowledgeable Marylanders during the next several months and will then make a formal announcement about the 2014 election."
Frosh, like almost every other Marylander, is assuming that current AG Doug Gansler will run for governor in 2014, creating a vacancy. Others who've been sniffing around the AG's race include Baltimore County Delegate Jon Cardin (nephew to U.S. Senator Ben Cardin) and Ways & Means star Del. Bill Frick, who is in Frosh's senate district.
