OWINGS MILLS - Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox spoke at the "Freedom Rally" in Owings Mills on Saturday. Cox was joined by Candidate for Maryland Attorney General Michael Peroutka and Maryland State Delegates Nino Mangione and Pat Mcdonough.

The rally was hosted by WCBM talk radio at the Hilton Garden Inn in Owings Mills from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday.

Cox, Peroutka, Mangione, and Mcdonough spoke before a medium-sized crowd of enthusiastic, flag-waving supporters.

In his speech, Cox called to slash state regulations, re-invigorate the economy, and keep kids safe in schools. He described these issues as bipartisan and framed his plan as one that can bring people together across party lines.

"We are at a point in history that we must take a stand, or we could lose the very Bill of Rights that we have put our faith and trust in as Americans," Cox said. "We are at the cusp of history, and everyone knows that the last two years have been very, very difficult for us, and everyone knows that we need a new direction for Maryland."

Cox spent most of his speaking time focusing on the economy and bringing down inflation.

"It's not a joke what everybody's facing. You can hardly make the weekly budget, so we've gotta take action, and the Washington politicians are not doing this for us."

Also on Saturday, Cox's opponent, democrat Wes Moore was joined by vice president Kamala Harris in Baltimore City for a "get out and vote" rally.

Among the speeches from prominent democrats, Moore took time to share his vision for Maryland and encourage people to vote.

"We all share a measure of hope that we can be a state where every single one of us is actually seen and where opportunity is provided for every one of us," Moore said. "It's not that everyone is going to end up in the same spot, but what we demand is that everyone gets a fair shot."

Both candidates for Maryland Governor are commencing their final push for votes ahead of the November 8 election. With a combined population of over 60,000, Owings Mills/ Reisterstown is a crucial battleground region for Maryland Gubernatorial candidates.
