New Brown television ad focuses on education

The Baltimore Sun

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign for governor released its fifth television ad on Monday.  While his previous commercials have been largely biographical, this one focuses on education – specifically, his plan for expansion of pre-Kindergarten education.

The ad aims to capitalize on Brown’s endorsement from the Maryland State Education Association, the state’s largest teachers’ union. “Maryland has some of the best schools in the country, but we can do better,” Brown says in the spot, which prominently mentions the endorsement.

Brown and the other Democrats in the race -- Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Montgomery County Del. Heather R. Mizeur – have all  expressed support for expansion of pre-kindergarten education, although each has presented differing plans.

The ad is to run in Washington D.C.

The 30-second spot is called “Ladders” – a reference to “ladders of opportunities” that Brown says would be created by increased educational opportunities.

The ada doesn’t mention either of Brown’s Democratic opponents. Brown holds the lead in early polls leading up to the June 24 primary.
