Attorney General Brian Frosh Endorses Manno for Congress!



Montgomery County, MD – Today Senator Roger Manno received the endorsement of Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh in Manno’s campaign for the 6th Congressional District. This is Attorney General Frosh’s first endorsement for Congress this cycle.

Speaking on his endorsement, Attorney General Frosh stated “I’ve known Roger for more than 15 years. During our time together in the State Senate, we worked closely on issues to improve the lives of working families, protect the Chesapeake Bay, and preserve Maryland’s natural resources. That’s why I’m endorsing Roger for Congress in the 6th congressional district.”

A self-described “People’s Lawyer,” Frosh is the first current statewide elected official to endorse in the race. The endorsement carries extra resonance in the 6th Congressional District by virtue of Frosh having represented Montgomery County for 28 years in the Maryland General Assembly.

“Brian Frosh is a model public servant, and I am proud to have his support in our race for Congress,” Manno stated. “As a State Senator, Brian Frosh was instrumental in some of my key accomplishments on behalf of Marylanders, including passage of legislation guaranteeing paid rest breaks for Maryland’s retail workers, and providing economic justice for victims of civil rights abuses.”
