Larry Hogan Pegs Boyd Rutherford As Running Mate For Maryland Governor

Play associated audio

Republican Larry Hogan has chosen Boyd Rutherford as his running mate in his campaign for Maryland governor, which he formally kicked off this week

Like Hogan, Rutherford was a member of former Republican governor Bob Ehrlich's cabinet. Rutherford also has served as associate administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration. 

Hogan's entry into the GOP primary means five candidates are seeking the party's nomination. Three Democrats are running for their party's nod, and they may also see a newcomer join the race. 

Speculation continues to swirl that first-term Congressman John Delaney might enter the Democratic primary. In a Washington Post interview, Delaney said he "expects" to be back in Congress next year, but did not outright deny a possible gubernatorial run. 

He'll have to decide whether to enter the primary by the end of February.
