Maryland State Delegate Jon Cardin ’96, MPP, has formed an exploratory committee for a potential run for Maryland attorney general in 2014, according to an AP article published in the Daily Record. Cardin, who is the nephew of the recently re-elected U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, is currently serving his third term as delegate for Baltimore County.
The AP story notes, “According to a report in the Gazette newspapers of Montgomery County, Jon Cardin will be holding a fundraiser for the exploratory committee on Dec. 4 at a private home in Baltimore.”
Cardin, who has represented residents of northwest Baltimore County since 2003, serves on the Ways and Means Committee. He was honored as UMBC Outstanding Alumnus of the Year for the Social and Behavioral Sciences in 2009.
