ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Republicans in the governor's race agree the state government is essentially a business and the top administrator is an executive.
During a formal debate Thursday evening at Johns Hopkins University, the Republicans' fifth since January, they repeatedly accused Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration of making Maryland unfriendly to investors.
Ronald George and Charles Lollar both touted their business experience as a credential for leading the state. David Craig compared his position as Harford County Executive to managing an enormous business.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Republican Larry Hogan has officially announced he is running for governor, but he's postponing an evening event due to snow.
Hogan had initially planned to hold the event Tuesday evening, but he's postponing it to next week.
The National Weather Service says Anne Arundel County could get 6 to 8 inches of snow Tuesday.
During the administration of former Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, Hogan was secretary of appointments. The 57-year-old real estate broker now leads a conservative, grassroots political organization called Change Maryland.
