In case you missed it, an article from columnist Jennifer Rubin in The Washington Post and an editorial from The Baltimore Sun assesses Governor Hogan’s “bold and unprecedented actions,” as well as his “calming, decisive” leadership during the coronavirus crisis.
Earlier today, Governor Hogan announced another series of major actions to fight the pandemic, including postponing the April 28th primary election until June 2nd, and implementing a vote-by-mail system for the 7th Congressional District special general election – “a necessary move to preserve both election integrity and citizen safety” according to The Baltimore Sun editorial board. As Jennifer Rubin notes in her Washington Post op-ed, Governor Hogan continues to be “decisive and aggressive” in “fighting the coronavirus pandemic.”
Washington Post: “Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has been among the most decisive and aggressive politicians in fighting the coronavirus pandemic. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, he models the six essential qualities in crisis management.”
Baltimore Sun: “If there’s one area in which Gov. Larry Hogan really excels, it’s in a crisis. His leadership during the spread of coronavirus in Maryland has been calming, decisive and largely spot on.
On Tuesday, he postponed Maryland’s primary to June 2 from April 28, joining a handful of other states — including Georgia, Louisiana and Ohio — that have taken similar action. It was a necessary move to preserve both election integrity and citizen safety, to the extent that either is possible amid a pandemic.”
