BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A day after announcing his plan to run for the State House, Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown is getting a big endorsement.

Brown stood side-by-side with Governor Martin O’Malley at an event at Waverly Elementary-Middle School, where O’Malley placed his support behind Brown.

The governor says he has a proven track record of leadership in Maryland.

It’s still not clear who Brown will face in what’s expected to be a heated gubernatorial race in 2014.
