Moore Makes it Official

Author and former CEO of a nonprofit, Wes Moore, has officially launched his campaign seeking the Democratic nomination for Maryland Governor.

He joins a crowded field of 7 other candidates hoping to succeed Governor Larry Hogan who is term limited. Moore says his campaign will focus on addressing inequities in the state.

He gained national attention as the best-selling author of “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates.” Moore lives in Baltimore where he grew up and is the former CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation, which fights poverty in New York.
