Another Republican To Jump Into Maryland's Gubernatorial Race

Play associated audio

The field of candidates for governor of Maryland will grow by one more today when Republican Larry Hogan formally starts his campaign.

Hogan served in the cabinet of Republican governor Bob Ehrlich from 2003 to 2007. Since then, he founded the website Change Maryland, which has been critical of all the tax and fee increases passed during the tenure of current Democratic governor Martin O'Malley.

Hogan's entry makes the Republican field bigger than the Democratic race. Hartford County Executive David Craig, Anne Arundel County Del. Ron George, and Cintas Corporation executive Charles Lollar are also seeking the GOP nomination.

But even though he's entering the race late, Hogan appears to have one advantage, at least according to the Change Maryland website.

On his biography page, published before he decided to run for governor in November, it says that former governor Ehrlich believes Hogan is the lone Republican with "a chance to win" the general election in Maryland in 2014, a state where Democrats have a massive advantage in registered voters.
