Faced with the daunting task of taking on the second most popular governor in America, Maryland Democrats are struggling in the governor’s race, only offering voters far-left, unimpressive candidates. The Washington Post reports that Maryland Democrat gubernatorial candidates are “struggling to capture voters’ attention” just weeks before their primary. In fact, the paper goes on to explain how one committed party member who showed up to a gubernatorial forum couldn’t even name the candidates.
“Don’t even ask me their names… In one ear and out the other,” said the forum attendee. Another Democrat forum attendee even expressed praise for Governor Hogan, saying, “It’s hard for me to like a Republican, but we’re cool with Hogan.”
The Washington Post explains that Democrats are struggling in Maryland because GOP Governor Larry Hogan “has managed to attract broad support,” earning him a sky-high 69% approval rating. Professor Donald Norris of UMBC even goes so far as to compare the Democrat options to a bowl of oatmeal, since none of them are “standing out.”
“It’s like a bowl of oatmeal — it’s all the same,” Professor Norris said of the field.
