Brown "Among The Trailblazers," Newsweek Says
Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) is getting a little national attention this week with a mention in Newsweek.
Brown is cited in a piece headlined "After the Trailblazers," which runs as a sidebar to a story on Barack Obama and showcases other African-American politicians who "appeal to all races by stressing consensus over conflict."
Others featured in the sidebar include District Mayor Adrian Fenty (D), Newark Mayor Corey Booker (D), Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) and Rep. Arthur Davis (D-Ala.).
All of the above, Newsweek says, "ran mainstream campaigns appealing to all races, stressing consensus and competence, and often forging close ties with the business community."
(The piece makes no mention of the fact that Brown was the No. 2 candidate on a jointly elected ticket headed by Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), who is white. Among states that have lieutenant governors, governors and lieutenant governors are elected separately in 18 of them, according to the National Lieutenant Governors Association.)
"We're the beneficiaries of a lot of trailblazing and hard work and sacrifice from African-Americans who came before," Brown says in the piece.
