Reading Political Wire this morning:
I’ve read this time and again as the election cycle gears up, that Hogan has 60-70% support in the state, had wide crossover appeal, etc. In an era where politics seem to begin and end with “He’s not a [Dem/Rep]? Fuck that guy”, that’s a pretty impressive niche.
I know Maryland is a solid blue state in presidential cycles (+25 Clinton) but that doesn’t always translate to state level elections. Still, not knowing what the situation is in Maryland, what’s the secret to this guy’s success?
