BALTIMORE (AP) -- State Sen. Brian Frosh is the Democratic nominee for Maryland attorney general.
With 44 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Frosh had 48 percent of the vote compared with 31 percent for state Delegate Jon Cardin and 20 percent for Delegate Aisha Braveboy.
Cardin's campaign manager says Cardin has conceded.
Frosh will face Republican Jeffrey Pritzker and Libertarian Leo Wayne in the Nov. 4 general election. Neither of them had primary competition.
Frosh has been a state legislator from Montgomery County for 28 years. He is in his 20th year as a senator. He was endorsed by Gov. Martin O'Malley and many other state Democratic leaders, who touted his long record as an advocate for public safety and environmental issues.
