Larry Hogan Career and Achievement

As the son of a U.S. Representative, Hogan was exposed to politics at a young age and worked in many aspects of politics including political campaigns and citizen referendums.

In 1981, at the age of 24, Hogan first ran for office in the special election to fill the vacancy in Marylands 5th congressional district left by Gladys Noon Spellman. Spellman had succeeded Hogans father in the congressional seat. Hogan finished 2nd out of 12 candidates in the Republican primary with 22.38% of the votes, behind Bowie Mayor Audrey Scott who received 63.26%.

In 1992, Hogan was the Republican nominee for Marylands 5th congressional district, running against Democratic incumbent Steny Hoyer. Hoyer outspent Hogan by a 6-to-1 margin. Despite that financial advantage, the race was the closest in Hoyers tenure. Hogan won four of the districts five counties and took 44% of the vote to Hoyers 53%, with William Johnston (Independent) at 3%. No other challenger has come as close to unseating Hoyer since.

Hogan took a four-year leave of absence from his business to serve as Marylands Secretary of Appointments in the administration of Bob Ehrlich from 2003 to 2007. In this capacity, Hogan appointed over 7,000 individuals to positions in the Maryland government.

In 2011, Hogan founded Change Maryland, a nonprofit anti-tax advocacy organization that was used to criticize the administration of Governor Martin OMalley. The organization promoted Hogans gubernatorial run, and his campaign eventually purchased the organizations assets. The Maryland Democratic Party alleged that Hogan had improperly received campaign benefits from the nonprofit, and the State Board of Elections dismissed two of the complaints but found Hogans campaign had not properly disclosed the value of a poll done by the nonprofit before purchasing its assets.

Hogan started his campaign for Governor of Maryland on January 21, 2014. On January 29, 2014, Hogan revealed former Maryland Secretary of General Services Boyd Rutherford as his running mate. On June 24, 2014, Hogan and Rutherford won the Republican primary, receiving 43% of the vote. In an election on November 4, 2014, they defeated Anthony G. Brown, the Democratic nominee and incumbent Lieutenant Governor, 51% to 47%. He is the first governor to be elected from Anne Arundel County, Maryland in over 100 years.

In the 2018 gubernatorial election, Hogan ran against Democratic nominee Ben Jealous, a former NAACP president. Hogan enjoyed significant polling and fundraising leads over Jealous throughout the campaign. Hogan ultimately defeated Jealous, 55% to 43%, becoming only the second Republican governor in Maryland history to be reelected, and the first since Theodore McKeldin in 1954. Hogan won the most votes of any governor in Maryland history.

Governor of Maryland

Media outlets have described Hogan as a moderate Republican and a "pragmatist", The Washington Posts editorial board wrote in 2015 that he was "true to his promise to govern from the center in the first legislative session of his term." On the Issues, a non-profit and non-partisan organization which tracks politicians positions, considers Hogan to be a centrist.

Hogan served as vice chairman of the National Governors Association (NGA) from July 2018 to July 2019 and as chairman of the NGA from July 2019 to July 2020.

In 2019, Hogan raised the possibility of running for president in 2020 but eventually decided not to run. In June, he addressed the Maryland Free Enterprise Foundation, a business advocacy group, in a combative speech, "skewering Democrats who control the state legislature and vowing to spend the remainder of his term in battle with them." Hogan promised to work against tax increases.

Hogan has enjoyed high approval ratings. A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll in April 2016 showed Hogan with a 66% approval rating. Hogans numbers were attributed to the improving economy in the state and Hogans decision to govern "focusing on taxes and other pocketbook issues while avoiding polarizing social topics such as abortion or religious-objection laws." By November 2017, Hogan had one of the highest approval ratings of any governor in the country. The independent Gonzales poll in January 2020 showed Hogan with a 75% approval rating from Maryland voters, including 77% from Republicans, 73% from Democrats and 78% from Independents; 70% from African-Americans, 75% from men, and 75% from women. Pollster Patrick Gonzales said in 2020: "In our 35 years of polling the voters of Maryland, we have never found a politician who was supported by 73% of Democrats, 77% of Republicans, and 78% of independents. These numbers indicate a versatile, Protean-like appeal we have not witnessed in a politician before ... anywhere." The quarterly Morning Consult polls, starting in late 2015 and continuing into 2020, consistently place Hogan as the second-most popular governor in the nation.
