In Maryland, the office of governor has extraordinary institutional power, more than in all but a handful of states. Choosing the best person to serve in that influential position is often the most important and impactful decision Maryland voters make every four years. This year, it may also be among the easier choices on the ballot. The Baltimore Sun endorses Wes Moore — an author, entrepreneur, Rhodes scholar and U.S. Army veteran — to serve as Maryland’s 63rd governor. The Baltimore Democrat, who turns 44 on Oct. 15, has demonstrated a solid understanding of the issues facing state government. He has the kind of energy, compassion and charisma that inspires others, and should serve Maryland well.
