Wes Moore and Dan Cox squared off at their first, and likely only, gubernatorial debate on Wednesday, each attacking the other as extremist members of their respective parties with radical views on nationally prominent political issues, from abortion to policing to election integrity. The two candidates are vying to follow Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, who is limited to two terms. Moore, a Democrat, veteran, entrepreneur and businessman who has not held public office, was randomly chosen to deliver the first opening statement, which discussed his vision for the office and did not offer any barbs aimed toward Cox.
