Wes Moore called his friend Oprah Winfrey to tell her he was thinking of running for governor on Jan. 6, 2021. As they chatted, both kept half an eye on the television screen and watched, to their horror, the riot at the U.S. Capitol. “I remember that so vividly,” Winfrey said Tuesday evening. “Both of us said, ‘Are we seeing what we think we’re seeing?’” Winfrey recounted this conversation during a virtual fundraiser for Moore, a best-selling author and former nonprofit leader who is now one of the frontrunners for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination.
