By Rachel Chason May 26, 2021 at 6:36 p.m. EDT Prince George’s County Executive Angela D. Alsobrooks (D) said Wednesday that she will not run for governor in 2022 and will instead seek another term running Maryland’s second-largest county.
Alsobrooks, 50, who has led Prince George’s since 2018, told The Washington Post that she decided not to enter the race for the governor’s mansion because she wants to focus on her “twin loves”: her 16-year-old daughter, Alexandra, and residents in the county where she grew up.
Alsobrooks raised the most money last year of any likely gubernatorial contender and said many Democrats in the state had urged her to run. But she said she wants to be there for her daughter in her final years of high school and help Prince George’s recover from the coronavirus pandemic, which hit harder in the county than elsewhere in the state.
