Energized by victories this fall, Maryland GOP hired its first finance director since 2008.

Energized by victories this fall, the Maryland Republican Party announced Friday it hired its first finance director since 2008.

Before Gov.-elect Larry Hogan's upset win this November and a wave of Republicans elected into office across the state, the Republican Party had spent years in debt and arguing over a way forward.

Now, the party ended 2014 in black and expects to raise over $1 million next year. The party has actively been raising cash for Hogan's inauguration.

The turn of fortunes for the GOP allowed it to hire a full-time finance director, a job that had been done by a series of consultants when necessary.

The party hired Margot Crouch to create a strategy to attract new donors and convince existing ones to give even more.  Crouch has served as the deputy finance director for the Pennsylvania Republican Party.
