Wes Moore, Black Gubernatorial, Maryland
Democrat Wes Moore earned a historic victory on Tuesday, becoming Maryland’s first Black governor-elect and the third Black person elected governor in U.S. history.
I explained a bit about Moore’s backstory, immortalized in his bestselling memoir “The Other Wes Moore,” while live-blogging the election results on Tuesday.
Our own Joy Reid interviewed Moore during Wednesday’s special election coverage to discuss his history-making moment and what he hopes to accomplish while in office.
