(The Washington Post)—Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown cruised past his two rivals in Maryland’s bitter Democratic gubernatorial primary on Tuesday, setting up a November contest with GOP nominee Larry Hogan, a Cabinet secretary under the state’s last Republican chief executive.

Brown, who would be Maryland’s first African American governor and only the third elected in the nation, won just over 51 percent of the Democratic vote in an election marked by lackluster voter interest. Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler lagged far behind with 24 percent of the vote, less than two percentage points ahead of third-place finisher Del. Heather R. Mizeur (Montgomery), according to nearly complete but unofficial returns.

Hogan, an Anne Arundel County businessman won 43 percent of the Republican vote, beating Harford County Executive David R. Craig (29 percent), Charles County businessman Charles Lollar (15.5 percent) and Del. Ronald A. George (Anne Arundel), who had 12.3 percent of the vote.
