Even as we consider the fallout of this election cycle, the field of Democrats seeking to challenge Gov. Larry Hogan in 2018 is set to start shaping up. Del. Maggie McIntosh said she is using the Democrats’ national defeat as motivation.
The Baltimore City delegate told the Baltimore Sun that she is considering a run for higher statewide office. She could challenge Hogan or fellow Democrat Peter Franchot, who is the state comptroller. She even floated a potential campaign sign on Facebook.
She said last week’s election results made her “dig deeper” and consider a run. In addition to Hillary Clinton’s loss, Maryland will also have no women serving in the highest profile elected positions following the departures of Barbara Mikulski and Donna Edwards.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz is also said to be considering a run for the governor’s seat.
