Last week was an exciting week on the campaign trail.

We released our first video ad, and it was a big hit! The ad has received tens of thousands of views on Facebook so far, along with excellent coverage in Maryland Matters and other press outlets. If you haven’t seen the ad yet, click here to watch it.

At the beginning of the week, we were at the Roland Terrace Democratic Club at a gubernatorial candidates’ forum hosted by the Democratic Clubs of Anne Arundel County. It was a big crowd, and was a great opportunity to speak with voters about proven solutions the Baron-Williams administration will bring to Maryland — such as a Statewide Tutoring Corps to help all struggling first and second graders in our state, moving them up toward grade level early, before their problems become serious in later grades.

On Wednesday, the Baron-Williams ticket was in Prince George’s County talking to seniors about how we can lower prescription drug prices and provide better, more affordable healthcare for millions of Marylanders.

Friday night, we sat down with the Civil Society Supper Club, a group dedicated to bridging the partisan divide in Frederick. We shared a vision for Maryland that includes everyone in the state — we can all make progress if we #DoWhatWorks.

Finally, on Sunday afternoon, our campaign participated in a candidates’ webinar hosted by Temple Solel and the Interfaith Coalition of Bowie. We are thankful for the opportunity to discuss our climate plans as they relate to the Chesapeake Bay, and how we can lead the region in cutting carbon emissions.

After another busy week on the campaign trail, and with just under three months to go before the July 19 primary, I’m more hopeful than ever about what we can accomplish when we #DoWhatWorks in Maryland.

We’re entering an exciting phase of the campaign, and we need all hands on-deck. Click here to join us today!
