Maryland Matters: Ben Jealous Will Be the Governor Marylanders Deserve
By DNC Chair Tom Perez
I’ve been in Maryland politics a long time, and I’ve seen many candidates come and go. Winning candidates inspire. They share a vision, and they show voters how our tomorrows can be better than our todays. I know a winner when I see one, and Ben Jealous is a winner.
In Ben Jealous—the youngest person to ever lead the NAACP and a small business investor—voters in my home state of Maryland have a historic opportunity to elect our first African American governor.
As the head of the DNC, I have to make strategic decisions about where to invest our resources, and investing in the Maryland Democratic Party’s all-Maryland field strategy, which will activate voters in every ZIP code in Maryland, was a no-brainer.
Like voters across the country, Marylanders are ready for bold, courageous leadership. They’re ready to send a message to Donald Trump and the Republican lawmakers who support his corrupt agenda.
