Maryland Attorney General says he will not apologize for comments made on a recorded video.

Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler says he won't apologize for remarks he made about his chief rival for the Democratic nomination for governor — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.

In video that was sent to the Washington Post this week, Gansler is heard telling campaign volunteers in Annapolis that Brown is "relying on his race" to get elected the first African-American governor in Maryland history. 

Brown's campaign called on Gansler to apologize for the remarks so that everyone can move on from the situation, but Gansler says he will not, believing he has nothing to apologize for. 

Gansler went on to say that his words were misinterpreted and that the race should be focused on records and policy proposals. Both Brown and Gansler will hold campaign events today on the Eastern Shore.

Montgomery County delegate Heather Mizeur is also seeking the Democratic nomination.
