Former NAACP chief Ben Jealous, who won the 2018 Democratic primary race for governor on wave of liberal support, enthusiastically endorsed author Wes Moore on Thursday in this year’s crowded and highly competitive contest. Jealous said in a statement that Moore, a former nonprofit chief he has known for 20 years, represents a “once-in-a-generation leader” capable of both representing liberal ideas and winning the state back from Republicans in November. Jealous is now president of People for the American Way, a liberal advocacy organization.
