Busi­ness in­no­va­tion au­thor en­ters race for gover­nor

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

An au­thor on in­no­va­tion in busi­ness has en­tered the gover­nor’s race.

Alec Ross an­nounced Wednesday he will seek the Demo­cratic nom­i­na­tion. He’s the first Demo­crat to say defini­tively he is run­ning.

The senior fel­low at Johns Hop­kins Univer­sity ad­vises startup and tech companies.

Mr. Ross says Repub­li­can Gov. Larry Ho­gan can’t be de­feated by us­ing ideas from the same old politi­cians. He says his cam­paign will be about in­no­va­tive ideas to bet­ter pre­pare stu­dents for the new econ­omy and to make govern­ment more trans­par­ent.

Sev­eral Democrats say they are con­sid­er­ing a run in next year’s elec­tion. They in­clude Prince Ge­orge’s County Ex­ec­u­tive Rush­ern Baker III and state Sen. Richard Madaleno.

Bal­ti­more County Ex­ec­u­tive Kevin Kamenetz and former NAACP chair­man Ben Jeal­ous also say they are con­sid­er­ing run­ning.
