The Associated Press called his victory over Republican Dan Cox shortly after polls closed at 8 p.m. No vote totals were immediately reported, but political prognosticators had rated the seat as “Safe Democrat” all fall.
Mr. Cox, a freshman state delegate, sought to paint Mr. Moore as being too left-wing for Maryland and ran on a law-and-order agenda, as well as reducing taxes and eradicating divisive curricula in schools.
He will succeed Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, who was term-limited from seeking a third term.
