History has been made tonight in Maryland!

Democratic candidate Wes Moore has been elected as the state’s first black governor, according to a race call by The Associated Press.

Moore is only the third black governor elected in the country.

Moore is a political newcomer but a longtime businessman and philanthropist. His campaign consisted of eliminating childhood poverty and ensuring Maryland remains a state dedicated to reproductive rights.

Moore’s win puts the state back into democratic hands after two terms with Governor Larry Hogan.
