U.S. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer and state Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller joined an array of locally elected officials Monday to officially endorse Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown for governor at a campaign luncheon in Waldorf.

Hoyer (D-Md., 5th) offered Brown (D) his “strongest endorsement,” stating that he and Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) have composed “Maryland’s Dream Team” since first winning election in 2006.

A former U.S. Army helicopter pilot and state delegate representing central Prince George’s County, Brown is “extraordinarily ready and able” to serve as governor, Hoyer said, adding that the collection of Charles County officials assembled at the Hilton Garden Inn in Waldorf showed the widespread support Brown has in the region.

“They know he knows it takes a village,” Hoyer said.

Brown said that O’Malley’s administration has delivered on previous campaign promises to improve education, reduce crime and recover jobs lost during the economic recession, and he pledged to “build on those successes” if elected governor.

“This is a great state, and I’m running because I think it can be better,” Brown said.
