Middleton grew up in La Plata, Maryland and attended Charles County Community College and Mount St. Mary's College before entering the United States Army. After his service in the United States Army (1968–1971), Middleton became the owner and operator of Cedar Hill Farm near Waldorf, Maryland.

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. 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.”

Democratic Party activist

In February 2008, Middleton endorsed the candidacy of Barack Obama for president of the United States.
