2015 loser: The Baltimore delegation

They couldn’t get Hogan to spend the $11 million lawmakers set aside for city schools. They received no heads-up on his plan to close the city jail. They couldn’t persuade him to move forward with the Red Line, a transportation project they’d spent a decade planning. And they couldn’t make him pay any political price for it whatsoever.
