Wes Moore highlights vision to ‘leave no one behind,’ slams Dan Cox’s divisive, far-right agenda at Maryland Public Television Debate
Wes Moore honed in on the economy, abortion, public safety, and education at tonight’s debate
Moore promises to ‘create a Maryland where no one is left behind’
BALTIMORE (Oct. 12, 2022) – Today, Wes Moore took the stage with Dan Cox for a televised debate hosted by Maryland Public Television. Moore highlighted his plans to boost the economy, fully fund our schools, protect women’s right to choose, and make our communities safer, and Maryland saw the same far-right extremism they have become accustomed to from Dan Cox.
“Tonight, Marylanders saw a clear contrast between my opponent and myself–my plans will uplift everyone in the state, ensuring that we’re leaving no one behind, while my opponent’s far-right agenda will divide us and cripple vital state programs,” said Wes Moore. “Maryland, this is our decade, and if we want to go boldly into the future then we need to take bold action. And, if you elect me as your Governor, I’ll work tirelessly every day to create a Maryland that leaves no one behind–a Maryland with a booming economy, safer communities, a better education system, and one where we protect a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.”
“The choice this November couldn’t be more clear, and the contrast at tonight’s debate highlights that,” said Carter Elliott, campaign spokesperson. “While Dan Cox was spouting extremist far-right views, Wes Moore was focusing on how he will leave no one behind when he becomes the next Governor of Maryland. Everyone watching tonight’s debates will see that Dan Cox is a danger to the future of Maryland, and Wes Moore is the bold choice to give Maryland the future it deserves.”
Wes Moore is a U.S. Army combat veteran who led soldiers in combat with the 82nd Airborne Division, a Rhodes Scholar, former small business owner, and former CEO of one of the nation’s largest anti-poverty organizations. He is the Democratic nominee for Maryland governor for the Nov. 8 election. Learn more at www.wesmoore.com.
