Maryland Republican gubernatorial nominee Dan Cox stopped Monday afternoon in Baltimore to call on the school district to remove Wes Moore's book from the district's required reading list.Moore is the Democratic gubernatorial nominee. The New York Times bestseller, "The Other Wes Moore," focuses on the lives of two men — both named Wes Moore — with two different upbringings. WBAL reports that Cox and a member of the other Wes Moore's family said the book is factually incorrect and exploitative..

Moore's campaign released a statement in response to the claims, saying: "This is a desperate attempt by Dan Cox to distract from today's poll results that show Dan Cox's values are dangerously out of step with Maryland families by doing what Dan Cox does best — peddling baseless conspiracy theories”
