Author and combat veteran Wes Moore is seeking to become Maryland’s first Black governor as Democrats look to strengthen their control in a state where they outnumber Republicans 2-to-1.
He’s up against state lawmaker and election denier Dan Cox. Two-term Republican Gov. Larry Hogan is term limited. Democrats already hold a supermajority in both houses of the General Assembly and a 7-to-1 edge in the U.S. House delegation.
Changes in the state’s congressional map do seem to have made the western Maryland 6th district more competitive. Incumbent Democratic David Trone is in a rematch with Republican Neil Parrott there.
