Councilmember Navarro’s Candidacy for Lt. Governor is Suspended

Former Prince George’s Executive Rushern L. Baker III and Councilmember Nancy Navarro suspended their bid for Maryland governor and lt. governor, effective immediately.

“Having considered the financial challenges facing our campaign in the coming weeks, my running mate Nancy Navarro and I have made the difficult, yet necessary, decision to suspend our campaign activities, effective immediately,” Baker tweeted Friday morning.

Baker also tweeted, “While activities will be suspended, the priorities upon which our campaign was based must continue to progress, and we will continue to be vocal supporters of those priorities that have resonated so clearly with Marylanders these past few months.”

Navarro, whose term on Montgomery County council expires this year, is the first Latina county councilmember. She previously served on the Montgomery County Board of Education.
