Ervin ends bid for gov­er­nor, en­dorses Baker for pri­mary

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Va­lerie Ervin has dropped out of the Mary­land gov­er­nor’s race to en­dorse Rush­ern Baker III in the Demo­cratic pri­mary.

Ms. Ervin made the an­nounce­ment Wed­nes­day in Lan­g­ley Park with the Prince Ge­orge’s County ex­ec­u­tive, who is in a tight bat­tle with for­mer NAACP Pres­i­dent Ben Jeal­ous for the nom­i­na­tion.

Ms. Ervin said Mr. Baker is the can­di­date who has the ex­pe­ri­ence to lead from the start.

Mr. Baker said the sup­port of Ms. Ervin and her run­ning mate, Marisol John­son, is im­por­tant be­cause their pro­gres­sive agenda is grounded in real govern­ment ex­pe­ri­ence.

Mary­land’s pri­mary is June 26.
