The Democratic field in the campaign for governor of Maryland will be completed tomorrow.

Montgomery County Delegate Heather Mizeur will announce tomorrow who she's picking as her running mate. She'll unveil her choice at an American Legion Post in Silver Spring. Mizeur is the only Democratic candidate yet to pick a running mate.

Current Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown selected Howard County Executive Ken Ulman back in May, while Attorney General Doug Gansler tabbed Prince George's County Delegate Jolene Ivey last month.

Mizeur is trailing both men badly in polls as well as in fundraising numbers. But that she's choosing a running mate is a sign she's in the race for the long-haul and won't drop out before the primary at the end of next June.
