Prince Georges County Executive Rushern Baker (D), as expected, joined the expanding Democratic primary gubernatorial field, yesterday. The candidates are jockeying for the right to challenge incumbent Gov. Larry Hogan (R), who enjoys strong favorability ratings. Mr. Baker joins former NAACP president Ben Jealous, state Sen. Rich Madaleno, Maryland University Regent Jim Shea, and technology executive Alec Ross as announced candidates. US Rep. John Delaney (D-Potomac) remains as a possible gubernatorial candidate.
