St. Mary’s College of Maryland will host a Democratic Gubernatorial Forum on Thursday, May 3, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Auerbach Auditorium of St. Mary’s Hall on the College’s campus.
Two Democratic candidates for governor – Maryland State Senator Rich Madaleno, and former policy director for First Lady Michelle Obama and the only women candidate in the race Krish Vignarajah, will meet attendees and discuss their political goals if elected governor.
Marylanders head to the polls in June to narrow the field for the race for governor. The public is welcome to attend this debate, led by moderator and St. Mary’s College Associate Professor of Political Science Todd Eberly, to learn more about the candidates running for governor. A straw poll will take place prior and following the debate.
The event is sponsored by the St. Mary’s College political science department, the College Young Democrats Club, the College Young Republicans Club, the St. Mary’s County Chapter of the NAACP, and the St. Mary’s County Democratic Club.
