BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jon Cardin is launching a campaign for Maryland attorney general.
The Democratic state delegate who represents Baltimore County and nephew of U.S. Senator Ben Cardin announced his candidacy on Monday.
Cardin says the state's next attorney general "must be aggressive enough and savvy enough to stay one step ahead of anyone seeking to harm our families -- whether on our streets or in cyberspace." He says his experiences as a state delegate, attorney and father have uniquely prepared him for the job.
Cardin says he will be a strong voice for all Marylanders who traditionally have been the targets of injustice.
