DGA Statement on Anthony Brown's Nomination for Maryland Governor

WASHINGTON, DC—Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin, Chair of the Democratic Governors Association, tonight issued the following statement regarding Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown’s victory in the Maryland gubernatorial primary:

“On behalf of all of our Democratic governors, I’d like to congratulate Anthony Brown for winning the Democratic nomination for governor of Maryland. As a son of immigrants, a 30-year Army veteran who served his nation in Iraq, and Lieutenant Governor, Anthony’s life experiences have prepared him to lead his state.

“Over the last eight years, he has helped balance budgets while protecting core middle-class priorities, building the best school system in the nation, and driving crime to 30-year lows. Over the next four, he’ll strengthen the economy and create jobs by investing in infrastructure, expanding workforce training, and spurring entrepreneurship and small business growth. As always, he’ll be guided by fiscal discipline and a steadfast focus on further improving schools and reducing crime. Anthony will be an outstanding governor and I look forward to working with him when he’s elected in November.”
