BALTIMORE (AP) — Former Baltimore judge Katie Curran O’Malley has announced a run for Attorney General.

The former Maryland first lady retired from the bench in October and formed a committee to explore a run after current Attorney General Brian Frosh announced he wouldn’t seek reelection next year. O’Malley emphasized her legal experience as she launched her bid Thursday, including experience as a prosecutor and a district court judge. She says she was tough on the bench, but never forgot her values and that everyone deserves justice. In the Democratic primary, O’Malley will face Rep. Anthony Brown, who served as the lieutenant governor for her husband, former Gov. Martin O’Malley.

Her father, Joseph Curran, served as attorney general for two decades.
