Maryland Democratic Race for Governor is Wide Open

September 28th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

With some of the highest approval ratings in the nation, Maryland’s Republican Governor Larry Hogan is not expected to receive a serious challenge in next year’s primary- however the latest poll released says identifying the leading democratic gubernatorial candidate is next to impossible at this time. The new Goucher College poll finds the Democratic race for Governor is wide open at this time with no clear front runner. Poll Director Mileah Kromer says 44 percent of those Democrats don't know who they will support.  Eight candidates have either announced their campaigns or filed to get on the ballot. Of the announced candidates, Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker gets the most support at 13-percent. In second place, at 11 percent, former Attorney General Doug Gansler.  He ran for Governor in 2014, but last week said he would not run next year. Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz received 8 percent, and is tied for third with Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the wife of Congressman Elijah Cummings.
