The two-hour moderated forum begins at 2 p.m. A chance to meet and greet the candidates follows. The forum takes place at Globe Hall, Montgomery College Germantown Campus, 20200 Observation Drive, Germantown.

Six declared Democratic candidates are expected: Rushern Baker, Ben Jealous, Kevin Kamenetz, Rich Madaleno, Alec Ross and Krishanti Vignarajah. Congressman Jamie Raskin will make closing remarks.

Tickets are free and open to the public. Register here.

UFM is committed to educating the public about the Democratic gubernatorial candidates, the importance of voting in the 2018 mid-term elections and electing a Democratic candidate as the next governor of Maryland.

“Governor Hogan has not provided the leadership and protection Marylanders need and deserve,” said Betsy Halsey, founder and president of United for Maryland PAC, the group sponsoring the event. “We are excited to have these candidates on stage for the first time on Saturday to pry apart their positions and start to find out which is the best leader for Maryland.”
