Hogan for Maryland

Governor Hogan’s “Common Ground” Pitch to Voters Has People Talking

With early voting just two weeks away, Hogan for Maryland yesterday launched its first ad buy of the election cycle.

See what people are saying about Governor Hogan’s “common sense” pitch for “common ground.”

Watch “Common Ground” on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

The Washington Post:“Former Maryland governor Larry Hogan is launching a nearly $1 million television ad campaign Wednesday…It features seven people complaining about gridlock and partisanship in Congress, with Hogan offering himself as the solution. He says he’s running ‘to be a voice of common sense.”

The Washington Times: “It doesn’t have to be this way,’ Mr. Hogan says in the ad. ‘Enough is enough. And it’s why I’m running for the U.S. Senate, to be a voice of common sense. I’m Larry Hogan. I approve this message because it’s time we stop the partisan BS and get stuff done.’… Mr. Hogan revealed last week that he has raked in more than $3.1 million since launching his candidacy in February.”

Fox News:“Last month, Hogan told Fox News a main reason he’s now running for the Senate is to ‘bring some sanity back to the divisiveness and dysfunction’ in the nation’s capital. He’s also touting his ability during his tenure as governor to work with a Democratic-dominated legislature to reach consensus. And in a new nearly $1 million ad blitz launched on Wednesday, Hogan takes aim at the ‘partisan BS’ in Washington. In the spot, Hogan vows ‘to be a voice of common sense’ and ‘get stuff done’ in the Senate.”

The Hill:“The 30-second clip, titled ‘Common Ground,’ features multiple voices lamenting that ‘D.C. is a mess’ and that ‘Republicans and Democrats are arguing all the time and nothing gets done.’ ‘It doesn’t have to be this way,’ Hogan says in the ad, promising to be “a voice of common sense” in Congress. The ad comes a little more than two weeks before early voting starts for Maryland’s May primary as candidates vie for outgoing Sen. Ben Cardin’s (D-Md.) seat.”

Wall Street Journal:“Like many Republicans, Mr. Hogan is currently trailing Democrats in the money race, but he’s launched a new television ad aimed at the moderate voter repelled by political polarization… ‘It’s time we stop the partisan BS and get stuff done.’ Sounds like an effective bumper sticker.”
