Maya Rockeymoore Cummings announced her candidacy for the 2018 Maryland gubernatorial race on Thursday.

“Maryland is blessed with many strengths, but under Governor Larry Hogan we’re punching below our fighting weight,” Cummings said in a statement to the press. “Too many Maryland families are still struggling to make ends meet. We can do better, and we need a leader with real-world experience and bold ideas who will make Maryland’s economy work for all people and communities.”

Cummings has worked in public service for nearly two decades and founded a small business and a non-profit organization both centered on social policy strategy, which have been involved in efforts to expand Social Security benefits, to create childhood savings accounts for city students, and to curb junk food consumption.

Cummings’s press release highlights leads with economic issues, promising to “take on the Trump Administration and Washington Republicans when their proposals would hurt Marylanders and the state’s economy.”

The Madison Park resident would face off against a host of Democratic contenders, including former NAACP President Benjamin Jealous and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, in hopes to unseat Republican Gov. Larry Hogan.

Cummings is the policy consultant for and wife of U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings.
