BALTIMORE, MD - Tonight, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement on the historic election of Representative Anthony G. Brown as the first Black Attorney General for the state of Maryland:  

“I congratulate my friend Rep. Anthony Brown on his election to be Maryland’s next Attorney General.  Whether in the United States Army, the Maryland State House, or the House of Representatives, Anthony has devoted his life to serving his state and his country.  His service is rooted in his commitment to justice and to his belief that all Americans deserve equal protection under the law as well as equal access to the opportunities they need to Make It In Maryland and Make It In America.  That’s why I have been proud to support him throughout his campaign and why Marylanders voted for him in this historic election.  I look forward to continuing to work with him to build a better, stronger, and safer Maryland.”
