Hogan Wins GOP Primary in Md. Governor’s Race

BALTIMORE — Larry Hogan has won the Republican primary race for governor of Maryland.

Hogan is a real estate broker who served as secretary of appointments in former GOP Gov. Robert Ehrlich’s administration from 2003 to 2007.

Hogan focused on economic issues in his campaign. Like other GOP candidates in the primary, Hogan has criticized tax increases approved during Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley’s administration.

If elected governor, he says he’ll work to get spending under control. Then, Hogan says he would see what taxes can be rolled back in the state.

Hogan says his work in the private sector and in state government enables him to better understand the problems businesses experience in Maryland.
