A week from today, Democratic voters in Maryland's Prince George's County will pick the party's nominee for county executive. Incumbent Jack Johnson can not run again because of term limits. Five Democrats are on the ballot, and with no Republicans running, the winner of the party's primary is all but assured of becoming the next county executive.

WAMU's Matt Bush recently sat down with the top two candidates in the primary. Today, he speaks with Rushern Baker, who previously ran for the post in 2002 and 2006.
