2022 Maryland gubernatorial candidate profile: Dan Cox

Republican Maryland gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox said his goal is to restore freedom to the Free State. Cox, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, said he is confident his message will resonate with voters and carry him to victory in the Republican primary for governor. Cox contends Gov. Larry Hogan, the term-limited Republican incumbent whom he sued and wanted to impeach, robbed people of their liberty during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. He cites the governor's stay-at-home order and mask requirements. When it comes to the vaccine, Cox rails against vaccination cards, which he called "vaccination passports." He deplores private businesses and government offices that require proof of inoculation.
