While Washington is once again retreating to its partisan corners, here in Maryland, we just passed tax cuts and economic relief in record time with near unanimous support.
It's time for Washington to follow our lead and work together to take real bipartisan action for the American people.
We are at another time for choosing. I refuse to give up and accept that the best days of the GOP – and of America – are a thing of the past. If you won’t either, sign up now.
An editorial from The Washington Post praises Governor Hogan’s traffic relief program as the “best way forward” for Maryland. Governor Hogan is continuing to advance this vital transit project, which would “rebuild and widen the nearly 60-year-old American Legion Bridge over the Potomac, and connect it to new high-occupancy toll lanes to widen the adjoining portion of the Beltway and Interstate 270 north to Frederick.” Under Governor Hogan’s leadership, Maryland has moved forward on all the top priority transportation projects in the state.
The Washington Examiner reports that Governor Hogan is fighting to give every Maryland child the opportunity to safely get back into the classroom, blaming teacher union bosses for blocking evidence-based reopening plans. Although the authority to open schools rests with elected school boards, every country school district has been authorized by the State of Maryland to resume in-person instruction since August. As Governor Hogan discussed on CNN last night, Maryland has also provided more than $1 billion to upgrade school buildings, sent one million COVID-19 test kits to school districts, and moved teachers to the front of the line for vaccinations.
An article in Politico reports on Governor Hogan’s vision for a post-Trump GOP. Asserting that President Trump was a “bad messenger,” Governor Hogan argued that the Republican party must “move on from the cult of Donald Trump and return to the basic principles that the party has always stood for.” Although Donald Trump lost the presidency overwhelmingly, other Republicans like Senator Susan Collins, Governor Phil Scott, and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick that Governor Hogan endorsed and campaigned for were successful because they focused on “common sense conservative” principles and reaching out beyond their base.
