Progressive Neighbors submitted questions to Democratic gubernatorial candidates on a range of issues including a transgender rights bill that a Maryland Senate subcommittee struck down in March. Both Mizeur and Attorney General Doug Gansler responded, but Lieutenant Gov. Anthony Brown did not.
“Progressive Neighbors is proud to endorse Del. Heather Mizeur in her campaign to become the next governor of Maryland because she is the most progressive candidate in the race,” Progressive Neighbors said in a press release.
Mizeur, who formally declared her candidacy in July, will face Gansler and Brown in the state Democratic primary in June.
The Montgomery County delegate could become the country’s first openly gay governor if Maryland voters elect her to succeed Gov. Martin O’Malley.
