While we had no involvement or prior knowledge of their actions, I’m outraged that an outside group caused unnecessary divisiveness in this race, and distracted from the important issues facing voters. They’ve made the right decision in ceasing operations.

I disavow the actions taken by this PAC, they do not speak for me. They do not reflect my values, who I am, nor the values of those who work for my campaign.

Baltimore is facing deep inequities and our leaders cannot play a part in driving divisiveness in our city.

From day one, our campaign has been about every Baltimorean - Black, White, Latinx, and Asian.

We are committed to inclusion, dismantling structural racism, and creating opportunity for everyone across our city.

Every day, we reach out to all voters, and we are so grateful to the broad coalition that has been moved by our message.

Even though we had no involvement or prior knowledge of this, we deeply apologize to our supporters and every Baltimorean.

I will continue to work every day to earn your trust and support.
