ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Republican Larry Hogan has officially announced he is running for governor, but he’s postponing an evening event due to snow.
Hogan had initially planned to hold the event Tuesday evening, but he’s postponing it to next week.
The National Weather Service says Anne Arundel County could get 6 to 8 inches of snow Tuesday.
During the administration of former Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, Hogan was secretary of appointments. The 57-year-old real estate broker now leads a conservative, grassroots political organization called Change Maryland.
Hogan lives in Anne Arundel County.
Hogan indicated in November that he was planning to run, joining the GOP field with Harford County Executive David Craig, Anne Arundel Delegate Ron George and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar.
