Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown To Announce Running Mate

Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has his eye on the Democratic nomination for the state's top office next year. On Monday morning, he is expected to announce Howard County Executive Ken Ulman as his running mate.

Brown is scheduled to make his selection in Columbia, Md., in Howard County. The rumors that Ulman, who considered a gubernatorial bid of his own, would be Brown's running mate started even before Brown formally announced his candidacy for governor last month.

By finalizing a Brown-Ulman ticket, the lieutenant governor is getting a head start on his likely top competitor for the Democratic nomination: Attorney General Doug Gansler, who's not expected to formally start his campaign until sometime this fall.

Baltimore Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger and Montgomery County Del. Heather Mizeur are also considering running for the Democratic nod.
