Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has long been considered a prime candidate to succeed Martin O'Malley as governor.

Maryland lieutenant governor Anthony Brown has unveiled a fundraising website, which is being taken as a sign that he will likely run for governor in two years.

The website touts Brown as the lieutenant governor and makes no mention of him running for governor, but it does allow visitors to make financial contributions to the Democrat from Prince George's County. It showcases Brown's work in Annapolis, as well as his military career. He is the highest ranking politician in the United States that is also a veteran of the Iraq War.

It's long been expected that Brown will run in two years to replace his boss, current governor Martin O'Malley. Other possible candidates for the Democratic nomination include Attorney General Doug Gansler, Comptroller Peter Franchot, and Howard County executive Ken Ulman.
