BALTIMORE (AP) — Ben Jealous is canvassing for votes with another man named Ben: Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
Jealous, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor of Maryland, has two events scheduled Saturday with Cohen, who is a co-founder of the ice cream company.
The first event is in Baltimore with the Service Employees International Union 1199.
The second event is at a phone bank in Silver Spring.
Jealous is a former NAACP president. Recent polls say he’s in a close race with Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker.
A week of early voting ended Thursday. It’s the last weekend before Tuesday’s primary in Maryland.
