Consultant Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, wife of Maryland US Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Baltimore), announced that she will enter the already crowded Democratic primary to oppose Republican Gov. Larry Hogan next year. This will be Ms. Rockeymoore Cummings’ first run for elective office although she has a political background. Already in the Democratic contest are Prince Georges County Executive Rushern Baker, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, former NAACP President Ben Jealous, state Sen. Rich Madaleno (D-Montgomery County), and four other less prominent candidates. The general election will be highly competitive. Early polling gives Gov. Hogan leads of varying degrees against all potential Democratic nominees.
