In the latest in a series of conversations with candidates for governor of Maryland, Rushern Baker talks about his life before entering politics and his career path since then — as a Democratic member of the Maryland House of Delegates and as the Prince George's County executive since 2010, following a major corruption scandal sent his predecessor to federal prison. In talking about his bid to challenge to the incumbent governor, Republican Larry Hogan, Baker says he would focus on economic development and job creation, revive the Red Line light rail project in Baltimore and keep funding the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.
