BALTIMORE (AP) — Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will face Republican Larry Hogan in Maryland governor's race in November, and state Sen. Brian Frosh won the Democratic nomination to face Republican Jeffrey Pritzker in the state's attorney general race.

Brown's victory puts Gov. Martin O'Malley's partner of more than seven years up against the founder of a grassroots political organization from Anne Arundel County in November's race for the job of Maryland's chief executive.

Brown's victory marked a major step toward his becoming Maryland's first black governor in a state where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 2-to-1 margin. Brown also would be the state's first lieutenant governor to win the governorship.
