Potential political star running for Maryland governor

July 5, 2022

Maryland Democrats, seeking to regain the governorship after an eight-year hiatus, have an exceptionally well credentialed field: two former Obama cabinet members, one who was chair of the Democratic Party, the state’s current comptroller and a former attorney general. The most striking resume, however, belongs to a candidate who has never run for political office: a Rhodes scholar and White House fellow, who with the 82nd Airborne division led troops in Afghanistan, a best-selling author who has financial experience and was CEO of a big antipoverty foundation. This is Wes Moore, one of the front runners in the July 19 primary.
