Larry Hogan To Announce Candidacy for MD Governor Tonight?

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Update: Larry Hogan told a crowd of about 1,100 people that he would announce his intentions in January. In other words he announced that he will announce.

Tonight kicks off the two day Maryland GOP Fall Convention. Among the highlights for the evening is an announcement from Larry Hogan on whether he will be running for the Republican nomination for Governor. Larry Hogan is the founder of Change Maryland which is a non-partisan grassroots organization comprising of over 65,000 concerned Marylanders. Change Maryland notes that they added 40,000 new members to their grassroots army just this year.

Hogan, who is expected to announce his run for governor tonight, will be joining the gubernatorial race after some of his supporters have urged him to run. Apparently many of his supporters are not happy with the current crop of GOP candidates for Governor, which includes David Craig, Ron George, and Charles Lollar.

There are several receptions tonight we can be attended for free without purchasing a ticket to the convention.

There are also tickets still available for the MD GOP Convention:

For those who can’t make the convention, you should be able to listen to the live stream brought to you by Red Maryland: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/redmaryland

“We Have To Pass The Law To See What’s In The Law” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D)

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Remember when then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) said we had to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it? Well she should ask the now over 5 Million newly uninsured what’s in it. This law is a disaster and will only get worse.

Government is just not effective or efficient enough to manage a massive takeover of the healthcare system. We could have changed some of the rules (like being on your parents insurance until your 26, and requiring insurers to cover preexisting conditions, etc.) without this government takeover. It is just a shame, and people are finally seeing what we have been talking about for the last 3 years.

They had 3 years to set up a website for the Affordable Care Act, and they couldn’t even get that right.
