Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the head of a public policy firm in Washington who is married to Democratic Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, said Tuesday that she is considering a run for Maryland governor.
Rockeymoore Cummings said she plans to make a decision by early fall. She’s been seeking advice, commissioning polls and conducting focus groups.
She said said she’s been pondering the idea of running for a couple of years — first, after being disappointed by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s election in 2014, then by Republican President Donald J. Trump’s victory last year.
“I’ve done a lot of soul-searching and I want to step up and consider a bid for Maryland governor,” she said.
