Bestselling author Wes Moore has won the Democratic primary for Maryland governor. His victory sets up a general election contest against Republican Dan Cox, a hard-line conservative endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Moore will be a strong favorite in the November election against Cox, a right-wing member of the Maryland House of Delegates whose extreme brand of politics is considered a liability in a heavily Democratic state that twice elected centrist Republican Gov. Larry Hogan. Moore would be the state’s first Black governor if elected. In the Democratic primary, Moore defeated former Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez and state Comptroller Peter Franchot.
