Rockeymoore Cummings enters governor’s race
Maya Rockeymoore Cummings — a consulting firm owner who is married to Rep. Elijah Cummings — is jumping into a crowded Democratic race for governor.
Ms. Rockeymoore Cummings announced her candidacy Thursday. She becomes the eighth serious contender to join the June 26 Democratic primary.
The 46-yearold has never held elective office. She runs the Washingtonbased public policy consulting company Global Policy Solutions.
She told The Baltimore Sun she wants to build on Maryland’s unique all-payer health care system to bring it as close as possible to universal health care. She said Republican Gov. Larry Hogan has shortchanged public transit and proposed a transportation plan that would do little to relieve traffic congestion.
