DEMOCRATIC ATTORNEY GENERAL CANDIDATE BRIAN FROSH LEADS PRIMARY FIELD WITH MOST MONEY RAISED AND CASH ON HAND  

Frosh shows strong fundraising numbers from broad network of donors across Maryland.

Annapolis, MD- Today, Maryland Attorney General candidate Brian Frosh filed with $795,909.69 cash on hand with the Maryland State Board of Elections. Frosh significantly outraised all of his potential Democratic primary opponents, raising $580,125.45 this year.

The Frosh campaign deposited nearly a million dollars during the campaign cycle, $973,131.34 in total.  Over 40% of the total campaign contributions were of 100 dollars or less, with over a thousand contributions from across the state.

Momentum for Frosh’s candidacy continues to build statewide. He has received a number of key endorsements from organizations including AFSCME COUNCIL 3, Maryland & District of Columbia AFL-CIO, Maryland Fraternal Order of Police (Lodge 35), Maryland League of Conservation Voters and Sierra Club- Maryland Chapter.  

Frosh has also received hundreds of individual endorsements from Democratic leaders across Maryland, including former Maryland governors Parris Glendening and Harry Hughes, Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-8) and Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker.  A complete list of endorsements can be found on the campaign website: http://www.brianfrosh.com/get-involved/stay-informed.

“The financial support Brian has received over these past several months clearly demonstrates the strength of Brian's candidacy and the momentum going forward to win the June Democratic primary. We are well positioned to do what we need to do to win the June primary and the general election in November,” said Campaign Finance Chair David Eppler.

As Chair of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, Senator Frosh will now focus on his legislative priorities, which include protecting Maryland's environment, providing resources to improve our public health, keeping our communities safe from gun violence, protecting senior citizens from scams, going after perpetrators that solicit strangers online to commit acts of sexual assault, and increasing protections for victims of domestic violence.

“We are humbled by such a strong and generous showing of support,” said Steve Sachs, a campaign advisor and former Maryland Attorney General from 1979 to 1987.  “The people of Maryland want an Attorney General who will advocate for the people, and that is why they are enthusiastically throwing their support behind Brian Frosh.”
