In the state race for Attorney General, the Carroll County Times endorses Democrat Brian Frosh. As a delegate, and then as a state senator, Frosh has a record of standing up for victims of domestic violence. He has worked to protect consumers from identity theft, and he was a key driver in Maryland's gun law and expanding the state's DNA database as a way to identify more criminals. He has also been a strong proponent of open government, ethics and of laws aimed at protecting our environment. Frosh brings a wealth of experience, a track record for results and the respect of lawmakers in Annapolis who he has worked with for years, all qualities that will serve him well as the state's next Attorney General.
