BALTIMORE (AP) — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has won the Democratic primary for governor of Maryland.

Brown has been lieutenant governor to Gov. Martin O'Malley since 2007. O'Malley couldn't run again because of term limits, but is considering a presidential run; a Brown victory in November would give him an ally to defend and extend his record.

Brown played a leading role in implementing health care reform in Maryland, and he was challenged during the campaign about severe flaws in the exchange website. Voters who supported him Tuesday said one person can't be blamed for the problem.

He campaigned to expand Maryland's economy, including creating a commission to study tax reform. He also says he wants to offer universal pre-kindergarten in Maryland by 2018.
