Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) is pushing the Republican Party to focus more on “common sense solutions for all Americans.” Hogan recently signed the bipartisan $1.1 billion COVID RELIEF Act to provide direct payments and tax credits for Maryland residents. Hogan has continually called for the federal government to distribute more vaccines, and he plans to reopen Maryland’s schools by March. Jacqueline Alemany, author of the “Power Up” newsletter, interviews Hogan on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 1:00pm ET.
Governor Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr. was sworn in as the 62nd governor of the State of Maryland on January 21, 2015. In 2018, he was overwhelmingly re-elected to a second four-year term, receiving the most votes of any Maryland gubernatorial candidate and becoming only the second Republican governor to be re-elected in the 242 year history of the state.
In his first inaugural address, Governor Hogan reminded citizens of Maryland’s history as a state of middle temperament and pledged to advance the best ideas, regardless of which side of the political aisle they come from. He is recognized nationally as a strong, independent leader who consistently delivers real results and achieves common sense, bipartisan solutions.
