    Rushern Baker to Make Maryland Governor Race Decision

    Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III said he will decide if he will run for governor of Maryland after the November presidential elections. 

    Baker, 57, said that he will talk with his family before deciding whether he will run against Gov. Larry Hogan in 2018, The Washington Post reports.  

    Baker, who is a Democrat, has been frequently mentioned as a likely challenger to the Republican governor. Baltimore's county executive, Kevin Kamenetz, and U.S. Rep. John Delaney also have been mentioned as potential contenders. 

    Baker is nearly halfway through his second and final term as county executive.
