Brian Frosh won’t commit to debating Wolf in AG race
Annapolis, MD (July 19, 2018) – Republican candidate for Maryland Attorney General Craig Wolf said on Thursday that he sincerely hopes Attorney General Brian Frosh will reconsider and commit to a series of substantive debates after Frosh declined to do so during a discussion between the two candidates at the Tawes Crab Feast and Clam Bake on Wednesday.
Wolf’s campaign released the following statement from the candidate:
“I had an opportunity to talk with Attorney General Frosh at Tawes on Wednesday – unfortunately, he wouldn’t commit to a series of debates. I believe Marylanders deserve a serious debate on the serious issues facing our state.
Brian Frosh and I have different visions for what the role of the Attorney General should be. I believe that the AG should focus on Maryland, not Washington, and should work with Governor Hogan to combat violent crime, address the opioid epidemic, and tackle corruption in our state. Brian Frosh believes that it’s his job to pursue political lawsuits every chance he gets. Marylanders deserve to see those competing visions contrasted with one another on the same stage.
I sincerely hope Attorney General Frosh will reconsider and commit to a series of substantive debates.”
Wolf’s campaign said that it plans to reach out to several media outlets and organizations – such as Morgan State University and the University of Baltimore School of Law, his alma mater – in the coming weeks to schedule at least two debates focused on what the role of the Attorney General should be, and it hopes that Frosh’s campaign will accept the invitation to collaborate on scheduling.
Craig Wolf is a former state and federal prosecutor, Counsel to the US Senate Judiciary Committee, business leader, and US Army Veteran. He is running to give Maryland an Attorney General who puts safety and security – not politics – first. Craig has been endorsed by Governor Hogan and the majority of Maryland’s Sheriffs.
