Maryland GOP Candidate Gets Endorsement, Formal Complaint

Play associated audio

Just as he received the endorsement of The Washington Post, Maryland Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan is under attack from two opponents over fundraising.

Hogan's top two competitors for the GOP nomination are complaining about the use of a grass-roots group in his campaign. Harford County executive David Craig and Anne Arundel County Delegate Ron George filed a formal joint complaint with the state elections board about what they say is improper coordination between Hogan's campaign and a group called Change Maryland.

It's a group the former Ehrlich administration cabinet secretary founded. Craig and George are criticizing contributions to the group as improperly benefiting Hogan's campaign.

But Hogan's campaign says the allegations are "utterly absurd and patently false," saying it sought guidance from the elections board before Hogan announced his campaign about how Change Maryland could interface with it.

Hogan received the Washington Post endorsement in the Republican primary yesterday. The paper said Hogan has distinguished himself from other primary opponents by "toning down the anti-tax brimstone" while acknowledging that a Republican governor will have to work with Democratic lawmakers.
