Maryland Dem Gov Candidate Ben Jealous Caught Falsely Claiming Endorsement From Cory Booker

Is U.S. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey planning to endorse former NAACP President Benjamin Jealous in Maryland’s gubernatorial race?

That’s what Jealous said Monday at a local Democratic Party event in Silver Spring Monday morning.

Montgomery County Council member George Leventhal asked Jealous how he plans to unite the two fractious sides of the state’s Democratic Party—the progressive wing that supported Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary and the Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton by a 2-to-1 majority in the Maryland primary.

Booker backed Clinton for president and served as a surrogate for her campaign, while Jealous endorsed Sanders and served as a surrogate for him during the campaign. Sanders endorsed Jealous in Silver Spring in July.

Why is he any different than what we have now? Hogan is one lie after the other. Reminds me of Bill & Hillary Clinton.
