Washington Times: GOP Governor Larry Hogan Is ‘Stronger Than Ever’ In Re-Election Bid In Deep-Blue Maryland

Maryland GOP Governor Larry Hogan is “stronger than ever” as he runs for re-election as the most popular governor in America.

The RGA reports:

Maryland GOP Governor Larry Hogan is “stronger than ever” as he runs for re-election as the most popular governor in America, outraising all of his opponents combined and leading every potential Democrat challenger by double-digits. The Washington Times is highlighting Hogan’s re-election strength in a new report, writing that Hogan is forecasted to be “the first Republican governor in Maryland to win re-election in about 60 years.”

The Washington Times reports:

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is lapping the Democratic field at the close of the fundraising books ahead of the June 26 primaries, as he is sitting on close to $10 million in cash for his re-election bid compared with about $600,000 for his nearest potential competitors.

Since winning in a stunning upset in 2014, Mr. Hogan has consistently championed themes tied to jobs and economic growth, along with lower taxes and less government regulation after years of one-party Democratic rule in Maryland, to score eye-popping approval ratings that would be the envy of just about any other governor in the country.

Despite national anti-Republican headwinds and a crowded field of Democratic contenders eager to take him on after their primary contest next week, political handicappers are forecasting another Hogan win in the fall. That would make Mr. Hogan the first Republican governor in Maryland to win re-election in about 60 years.
