MARYLAND — Last week, Republican gubernatorial nominee Dan Cox went on a right-wing radio program and, asked if former president Donald Trump would be part of his campaign, responded he “would love to have him come to Maryland,” adding that “behind the scenes, he’s working to help me […] President Trump is talking with me regularly about more things that he can do and he’s promised to carry us through the finish line.”
Today, a new report from The Hill revealed that Cox is scheduled to join Trump in Florida just three weeks ahead of the eve of the election at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Club. News of the event comes just a day after news broke that Trump faces a lawsuit over one of his many sexual assault allegations and that New York’s Attorney General filed suit against Trump for about a quarter billion dollars over illegal profits allegedly netted from large-scale fraudulent financial practices.
Cox supported and actively participated in Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, pushing his baseless voter fraud conspiracy theories on social media and as a part of Trump’s legal team in Pennsylvania. Cox reiterated his claim that the election was stolen just two months ago. Last month, as news broke that the FBI conducted a warranted search of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate, Cox rushed to social media to declare that, as governor, he would use state police and the Maryland National Guard to oppose the Biden administration.
“Unfortunately for Dan Cox, Donald Trump will not be able to make good on his promise to carry his campaign across the finish line,” said Maryland Democratic Party spokesperson Ernest Bailey. “Marylanders will determine the results of this election, no matter what election deniers like Trump and Cox have to say about it. Cox’s history of putting the MAGA agenda first, from promoting 2020 election conspiracy theories to his threat to use the state police and national guard to protect Trump, will prove to be disqualifying.”
