Maryland’s governor-elect has two months to put together a team of staff, pick cabinet secretaries, draft a legislative agenda and propose a budget. And plan an inauguration, too. Democrat Wes Moore, who was victorious over Republican Dan Cox in the general election, was afforded something rare in politics: confidence that he would likely win. Even so, Moore and his team focused on ensuring they would win rather than on getting a head start on the transition from campaigning to governing. Moore’s team declined to make anyone available for an interview ahead of Election Day about the transition process. But rumors about the transition have been swirling in political circles, particularly about who is applying for which job and who might be hired by the next governor.
