Maryland's Democratic hopefuls for governor try to appeal to college voters at Goucher forum

Seven of the Democrats hoping for a chance to unseat Gov. Larry Hogan took their message to students at Goucher College on Friday, promising to work to make college more affordable and create better job opportunities for young Marylanders.

The candidates tailored their pitches for the younger crowd and urged them to get active in politics and to turn out to vote.

“It is time for us to bring a sense of direction and hope back to the state of Maryland,” said state Sen. Richard Madaleno of Montgomery County.

Madaleno was joined on stage at Goucher’s Young Voters Forum by five other contenders in the Democratic primary: Ben Jealous, the former NAACP national leader; Jim Shea, former chairman of Venable law firm; Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz; Krish Vignarajah, former policy director for First Lady Michelle Obama, tech author Alec Ross, and Ralph Jaffe, the only candidate who has officially filed to run.
