    What are some of those things? Ther are limits to what he can do, given the willingess of the legislture to override him.

    There are many thing s i don't like against Hogan, but I will hold my nose and vote for him.
    He has done great things for Maryland compared to the tax and spend O'Malley, and IMO Jealous is O'Malley II.

    We really do not have a choice and I am amazed that Ben Jealous is the best the Democrats have. Pathetic.

    I guess I don't see the problem with Hogan. Being a Republican governor in Maryland automatically means you are a centrist and not too far to the right. Besides, even if he were and tried to push a ultra conservative agenda, the beer brothers in Annapolis (Miller and Busch) would stop most, if not all of it and everything else along the way. He would be an one-term lame duck governor.

    I guess I look at things he has done and not focus on the things he hasn't. There were so many things from the previous administration that got reversed and so many obsolete rules and regulations that got purged, that it had some immediate effect on citizens and businesses. Focusing on infrastructure projects that were neglected and were coming to the point needing to be addressed was a necessary step and makes traveling safer and easier in some places. It seems to me he fights the fights he has some control and a reasonable chance of success and lays off those that are automatic losers.

    I'd like to know something specific that Hogan has done that make someone feel they need to hold their nose and vote for him. I don't see him that way and I doubt you could have much better choice given the makeup of the legislature.

    Good post. I'm not sure what republicans in this state that say they won't support Hogan are expecting. They are never getting a far right conservative. The GA is made up of enough democrats to have an ability to override a veto. Any republican has to govern from the center. Hogan eased the tax onslaught that O'Malley passed and killed some foolish spending projects like the red line. And the NRA guys who say they won't support Hogan? Think about what you will get with Jealous. Hogan may not have gone after gun legislation the way they wanted, but at least he represents a block from more extremist legislation. Look at the Jealous platform and tell me that's what you want. NRA people need to wise up and realize that their agenda is getting tougher and tougher to defend and the best they can do in a state like this is to hold the line. Good luck with that if Jealous is elected, NRA people.
