Brown's Colleagues Coming to Maryland
They're not the most recognizable elected officials in America, but they have some potential, and most every state has one. And they're coming to Maryland this week.
The National Lieutenant Governors Association is convening Wednesday in Baltimore for its annual convention. Maryland's own -- Lt. Gov. Anthony B. Brown (D) -- will be doing some hosting while the gang is here. The group includes 42 politicians with the title "lieutenant governor" as well as other officials without it who are first in the line of succession to governors in the 50 states and five U.S. territorial jurisdictions.
Brown is hosting a welcoming reception Wednesday night at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. But the pressure will probably be greater Friday night, when he and his colleagues gather at Camden Yards to watch the Orioles take on the Red Sox. That's because Brown is scheduled to throw out the first pitch.
Brown spokesman Mike Raia reports that Brown has done this twice before -- but never in a big-league stadium.
"He'll be practicing tomorrow on the grounds of the State House," Raia said.
