Per The New York Post:

Maryland Democratic Gov. Wes Moore tried to stamp out speculation Wednesday that he could take over for President Biden as the party’s presidential nominee if the incumbent is unable to continue his campaign.

“I am full-throated in my support of President Biden,” Moore told “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade, who had said that “people are floating your name as a possible President Biden replacement should the wheels come off come the August convention.”

“When I was first inaugurated,” the governor went on, “we were 43rd in unemployment, now we have amongst the lowest unemployment rates in the entire country. We’ve been able to slash the homicide rates and the violent crime rates.”

Moore, 45, stressed that he had worked in “partnership with the Biden administration” and said he was “excited” at the prospect of another four years with the 81-year-old president in the White House.

The left-leaning news outlet The Daily Beast recently wrote an article touting Wes Moore as a potential president.
