MARYLAND (AP) – Maryland gubernatorial candidate Rushern Baker has announced that Montgomery County Councilwoman Nancy Navarro will be his running mate. Baker, who is a former Prince George’s County executive, made the announcement Wednesday. Baker is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor for 2022 in a crowded primary. Baker says he has worked with Navarro for more than 20 years in local government. They both have served as local officials in two neighboring counties in Maryland’s suburbs of the nation’s capital. Baker says they’ve worked on growing the economy and creating jobs, improving public schools and transportation and raising the minimum wage.
