Governor Larry Hogan has set a strong trajectory for the Maryland Republican Party going into what is sure to be a raucous 2018 election cycle. While so-called “midterm” elections are usually reported to national audiences as referendums on the President and the political Party in power, Maryland’s gubernatorial and legislative elections next November are already shaping up to be more about whether Marylanders are ready to give other voices a seat at the table.
Road to 2018
According to a poll released by Goucher College, Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan retains broad, bipartisan, approval despite the State’s more-than-2-to-1 voter disadvantage against Republicans. The Governor is sitting very comfortably at 63%.
