Political career

Middleton's political career began when he was appointed to a four-year term on the Charles County Planning Commission. In 1986, he became a member of the Charles County Commission, the local legislative body for the county. He won a seat in the State Senate in the 1994 election. Middleton is the Chair of the Senate's powerful Finance Committee. He has been mentioned as a possible successor to current Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr.

In 2005 and 2006, he co-chaired the Special Committee on Employee Rights and Protections. [1]. This panel was reportedly created to investigate state government employment actions. The administration of Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., criticized the effort as a “partisan witch hunt,”and a minority report claimed that “the committee’s 13-month investigation of the Ehrlich administration was unnecessary, expensive and fruitless.” [2]
