Krishanti Vignarajah, a onetime policy director for former first lady Michelle Obama, announced Wednesday that she plans to enter the race for Maryland governor, becoming the first woman to join the crowded field for the 2018 Democratic nomination.
Vignarajah plans an official campaign announcement next month.
I am running for governor because I am worried my daughter will not have the same opportunities my parents gave me when they brought our family here when I was a baby girl, she said in a statement. I hope Marylanders will agree the best man for the job is a woman.
Vignarajah, 37, of Gaithersburg, will compete against Prince Georges County Executive Rushern L. Baker III, former NAACP president Ben Jealous, state Sen. Richard S. Madaleno Jr. (D-Montgomery), technology entrepreneur Alec Ross and lawyer James L. Shea.

Another sexist pig in an ultra-leftist state, YAWN.
So that's it, huh? She's going to have to do better than that. At least she can't run for president somewhere down the road. I guess.
I always laugh when I hear or read the name “Ben Jealous”. That pretty sums up what motivates him, that he’s been jealous of whites and there’s really no reason.
If Obama, Cruz and Rubio can, anyone can.
That’s what I was thinking.
She is completely qualified for ANY democrat job.
Considering, of course, their laughable standards (or lack thereof).
She does indeed fit Maryland well.
She has a plethora of incompetent mates to choose from in Baltimore.
Funny, I paused at the name of the writer of the article. Huh?
The portrait of Washington is throwing-up in his mouth.
If you are going to live in America can you at least get a normal American name that people can pronounce?
Too many foreigners come here and don’t become American.
I believe democracy. This indicates what Maryland has turned to. What kind of people live there
Quite the polyglot they had stirred up in the Obama White Hut...
Why in the world did Michelle have a “policy director”? Who elected her to anything?
That sasquatch is dangerously close to that woman.
No sh&t. That was my first thought too.
I don’t think she is qualified. Something about living/voting in Maryland for the five years before you run for governor. She voted in D.C.
Why the hell did Moochie need a policy director? How much did this cost the taxpayers?
