Katie Curran O’Malley, the wife of former governor Martin O’Malley (D-Md.), will announce this week that she is running for Maryland attorney general.
The bid by O’Malley, a 59-year-old retired judge, will set up a primary battle with Rep.

Current Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D) is declining to seek reelection next year, though O’Malley forecasted that she will continue his work.
“I have a great deal of respect for Brian Frosh; I would not have been running if he were seeking reelection,” she said in an interview with The Washington Post, which broke the news of her campaign.
“When he decided that he would not, I thought it was the perfect marriage of all the experience that I’ve had as state’s attorney and then as a judge to campaign for the role of attorney general and to carry on his legacy,” she added.
Frosh announced in late October that he will not run for another term, and O’Malley announced roughly a week later that she would step down from her role as a Baltimore District Court judge.
