After dust-up over governor’s letter, Maryland Republican Party will find new nominee for State Board of Elections

February 23, 2023

Wes Moore (D) for “sneaky, hyper-partisan attacks.” The response comes after Moore informed Republican Chair Nicole Beus Harris that he was rejecting the party’s nominee for the state board because of concerns about William Newton’s published criticisms of the state elections process and an embezzlement conviction. Harris, in a statement issued late Wednesday defended Newton as a “qualified nominee” while not addressing issues concerning the embezzlement charge.
