Moore Declared Winner in Democratic Primary for Governor; Perez Concedes

Takoma Park native Wes Moore has been projected as the winner in the Democratic Gubernatorial Primary on Saturday. Moore and his running mate Aruna Miller garnered 33.60% of the votes counted so far. Tom Perez has conceded. He and his running mate Shannon Sneed have 28.65% of the vote.

Moore and Miller will face Republican candidate Dan Cox — who was endorsed by Donald Trump  — and his running mate Gordana Schifanelli in the November election.

Perez and Sneed have more than 9,00o more mail-in and provisional votes than Moore and Miller but the deficit in early voting and Election Day votes was too much to overcome.
