Democratic U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown wins Maryland attorney general race, becomes first Black person elected to the office

November 9, 2022

Democratic U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown won the race for Maryland attorney general, becoming the first Black person elected to the office. The Associated Press called the race for Brown at 11:09 p.m., after the congressman maintained a sizable lead over Republican Michael Peroutka in the hours after polls closed. Brown will succeed the state’s current chief legal officer, Brian Frosh, a Democrat who served two terms as attorney general and did not run for reelection. His victory comes on a historic night for the state, which elected its first Black governor in Democrat Wes Moore.
