Much like the 2016 primary election for mayor, this year’s race for the Democratic spot to challenge Gov. Larry Hogan in November features a deep field. To Democrats: Even though you have until June 26 to figure this out, there’s no better way to make up your mind than hearing from the candidates directly (Republicans, we’re pretty sure you know already).
The whole lot of them–save for perennial candidate Ralph Jaffe–is scheduled to appear at the War Memorial tomorrow for a forum hosted by United for Maryland PAC. If you haven’t been paying attention, that list includes: Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, former NAACP president Ben Jealous, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, state Sen. Rich Madaleno, tech entrepreneur Alec Ross, former attorney Jim Shea and former policy director for former first lady Michelle Obama Krishanti Vignarajah. No doubt they will discuss what they plan to do to help our city. And if clean energy is important to you, show up early for a rally outside the building hosted by Food & Water Watch.
Forum from 2-4 p.m.; candidate meet-and-greet from 4-5 p.m., War Memorial Plaza, 101 N. Gay St. #D; tickets available here.
