HOGAN’S MISSED OPPORTUNITY TO FIGHT FOR MARYLAND
Annapolis, Md. – Maryland Democratic Party executive director Chuck Conner released the following statement in response to Governor Larry Hogan’s State of the State address:
“From threatening the health care of more than 400,000 Marylanders to detaining a Maryland preschooler, Trump’s harmful agenda is already being felt at home. And as Governor Larry Hogan refuses to stand up to Trump, Democrats are preparing to defend Maryland middle-class families from the harmful impact of his agenda.
“Governor Hogan might try to ignore national politics, but what happens in Washington will eventually catch up to neighboring Maryland.
“Marylanders want solutions, not slogans. And with so much chaos in Washington, hardworking Maryland families deserve to know that they can trust our governor to fight for Maryland. Governor Hogan failed to provide that assurance today.”
