Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy Endorses Wes Moore for Maryland Governor
Top law enforcement officer of second-largest jurisdiction delivers key endorsement
Moore’s unprecedented momentum continues
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (March 23, 2022) – Prince George’s State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy endorsed Wes Moore in the race for Governor today. The endorsement included a discussion on public safety between Moore, who recently released a comprehensive plan to create a safer Maryland, and the top law enforcement officer of Maryland’s second-largest jurisdiction. It was moderated by DJ EZ Street, and attended by dozens of supporters.
“I am proud to call State’s Attorney Braveboy a friend, and now I am proud to call her a partner in this grassroots coalition to build stronger and safer communities in Prince George’s County and in every corner of Maryland,” Wes Moore said. “Over her entire career as an attorney, a delegate, and the top law enforcement officer in Prince George’s County, she has proven herself a devoted champion for Maryland’s families. Together, we will build a state that leaves no one behind, where people feel safe in their communities, and families in Maryland have the support they need to have a fair shot to succeed.”
Braveboy was elected State’s Attorney of Prince George’s county in 2018. She also served two terms in the Maryland House of Delegates, representing District 25.
“I believe that Wes Moore is not only the right candidate, but the best candidate to lead our state as the next governor. Wes has the experience, vision and drive. As the former CEO of one of the largest anti-poverty organizations in America, he demonstrates that he has the leadership skills and understanding to serve people. His roots in our state have given him a great sense of the needs of our communities, and across the state as a whole,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy said. “We share the same vision for making Maryland better and safer by combating crime, reforming our criminal justice system, and renewing and rebuilding relationships with our communities and key stakeholders. Together, I am confident we will continue to build a better Maryland by ensuring inclusion on all levels, and making it clear that there is zero tolerance for discrimination in any sector. It is for these reasons that I throw my complete support behind this great candidate who is also a loving husband, father, and someone who I am pleased to call a friend.”
The endorsement bolsters the case that Moore and his running mate former Del. Aruna Miller represent the most viable ticket in the field and Democrats’ best chance at winning back the Governor’s office. The Moore-Miller campaign continues to set the pace in the race for Governor by leading the field with record breaking fundraising, growing their network of supporters to include over 5000 volunteers, and earning the endorsement of dynamic leaders from across Maryland.
Moore recently opened his field office in Prince George’s County and is building a robust operation in the state, including high-profile endorsements across the county — including city councilmembers, mayors, and county-wide leaders.
