Maya Rockeymoore, widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, is expected to run for her late husband’s House seat, according to a report.

Rockeymoore has not yet said whether she plans to run, The Washington Examiner reported.

The Maryland Democratic Party released a statement that Rockeymoore would not be making announcements while she grieves.

"We ask the public and the press to allow Maryland Democratic Party Chair Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings — and the rest of the Cummings family — time and space to grieve their loss,” the party said.

Rockeymoore, 48, has previously worked for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, served as chief of staff to former U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel, D- N.Y., and was a staffer on the House Ways and Means Committee. She also ran for governor in Maryland but dropped out when Cummings was hospitalized in 2018.

Cummings was elected to his seat in Maryland’s 7th Congressional District in 1996 and served 12 terms until his death due to underlying health conditions.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has 10 days to schedule a special election for Cummings' seat, but he has wide leverage over when it will take place. It could be as early as February or more than a year from now, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Cummings and Rockeymoore married in 2008, according to the Examiner.

Cummings will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol next week and a funeral will be held in Baltimore on Friday.

Remember this?

Elijah Cummings’ Wife Accused Of ‘Self-Dealing’ For ‘Illegal Private Benefit’

Rockeymoore operates two organizations; a nonprofit called the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC. (GPS) According to a Monday filing by the watchdog group, National Legal and Policy Center (NPLC), the two entities have overlapping operations, and may have been used for “illegal private benefit.”

According to the report, CGPS and GPS “have mutual clients, donors and projects, and were located at the same address and share a phone number.”

I wouldn't bet on her prevailing. She was only his wife for 10 years. He had been divorced for over 25 years with one child from that marriage and two other children from earlier relationships where he knocked up some ho'.

He wasn't exactly a family man. And voters are usually only loyal enough to elect a pol's widow if they are a lifelong spouse and the only mother of the pol's children. The Widow Cummings is neither of those.

That's a pretty sweet district and other Dem pols will be thinking hard about challenging her for the seat. The GOP governor can play when he schedules that election in several different ways to strategize. I would expect a special election before the end of the year.
