Current Maryland Governor Larry Hogan took to social media to inform constituents that he has spoken with Governor Elect Wes Moore and congratulated him on being elected as Maryland’s next Governor, saying “There is no higher calling than public service, and no greater honor than to serve the people of this great state.”

The Associated Press called the race for Maryland Governor earlier on Tuesday night, naming Democrat Wes Moore the next Governor of Maryland. Moore defeated Republican Dan Cox and will be the first Black Governor in Maryland history. Hogan added “Our team is committed to ensuring a smooth and orderly transition to the next administration, and I look forward to meeting with the governor-elect in the coming days.”

As of 9:13pm, Wes Moore had a total of 371,922 votes (66.4%) compared to 172,290 votes (30.76%) for Cox, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections.
