Prince George's County Executive and democratic candidate for governor of Maryland, Rushern Baker, officially announced his pick for lieutenant governor.
At a press conference on Tuesday, Baker introduced Elizabeth Embry as his running mate.
Embry had been chief of the attorney general’s criminal division but resigned on Tuesday to focus on the race.
She has also previously run for mayor of Baltimore.
I could not be more pleased to announce that the "Daughter of Baltimore" @Embry4MD will be joining me as a running mate. She's a brilliant prosecutor, and exactly what we need to make Maryland work #ForAllofUs pic.twitter.com/7UWvNA1lfs— Rushern Baker (@RushernBaker) February 20, 2018
