Could another Republican pick up the Hogan magic? In the wake of Barbara Mikulski’s decision to retire from the U.S. Senate, most of the focus has been on the Democrats looking to replace her. But a couple of GOP pols are looking to get in the race.
Maryland leans Democrat, with Republicans outnumbered 2 to 1. But Hogan’s victory has left the GOP with some belief.
On Tuesday, Del. Kathy Szeliga entered the race. According to the Washington Post, the businesswoman who represents Baltimore and Harford County is being backed by establishment Republicans like former Gov. Bob Ehrlich.
Also considering a run is Harford County executive Barry Glassman, who was just elected last year. Maryland Reporter got a look at poll numbers that indicated the former sheep farmer had solid favorables in the Baltimore area.
Over the summer, former Pentagon lawyer Richard J. Douglas got in the race.
Baltimore City Republican Chrysovalantis Kefalas, who formerly worked as an attorney and serves as Vice President of the National Association of Manufacturers, is also looking at a run.
