Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will unveil a new round of endorsements Saturday as he continues his quest for the Democratic nomination to be the state's next governor.
Brown will hold events in both Baltimore and Chevy Chase, where he will announce endorsements from Baltimore-area officials as well as Montgomery County politicians.
The lieutenant governor has racked up many high-profile endorsements, including both U.S. senators from Maryland as well as current governor Martin O'Malley.
But Brown's top rival for the Democratic nomination, attorney general Doug Gansler, has tried to belittle the endorsements, saying Brown is highlighting them because he has a light record of accomplishments.
Gansler's campaign continued its attacks this week on Brown's handling of Maryland health insurance exchange website, with the lieutenant governor's camp again responding that the attorney general's attacks sound similar to those of Republicans who have tried to stop the federal Affordable Care Act at every turn.
Meanwhile, the other Democrat in the race, Montgomery County Del. Heather Mizeur, picked up her biggest endorsement yet this week, as the Montgomery County police union announced it will support her campaign.
