Wes Moore, Dan Cox dash across Maryland as the campaign for governor nears finish line

November 7, 2022

Wes Moore swayed in the pew, hands lifted as he sang along with the choir: “When nothing else could help, love lifted me!” The Democratic nominee for governor of Maryland spent the last Sunday of the fall campaign worshipping at a pair of Prince George’s County churches and urging congregants to vote on Tuesday. “Generations came before us, so we could have Tuesday,” said Moore, who hopes to become the state’s first Black governor, when he was given the microphone at Mt. Ennis Baptist Church. “Generations fought so we could have Tuesday. Generations bled so we could have Tuesday. Generations have marched so we could have Tuesday. Generations have sacrificed so we could have Tuesday.” Moore’s pitch to the largely Black congregation at Mt. Ennis was among the final speeches he’ll give in a campaign that concludes with traditional Election Day voting on Tuesday.
