WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association issued the following statement on Larry Hogan’s victory in Maryland:
“Larry Hogan’s commitment to Maryland, its families and its future made it clear he was the best candidate to lead the state forward, and the voters agreed,” said RGA Chairman Chris Christie. “As their governor, he will put his forward-looking vision into action, working tirelessly to enact a common sense, pro-growth agenda that will make Maryland competitive and prosperous again. The Republican Governors Association is proud to congratulate Governor-elect Larry Hogan on his victory.”
The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Governor-elect Larry Hogan’s victory, spending $1.2 million in the final weeks of the campaign on paid media. The RGA ran one television ad in Maryland detailing Democrat Anthony Brown’s support for higher taxes and fees on a multitude of items, and defined Brown as the second string for Martin O’Malley’s third high-tax term.
