Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

2015 winner: Gov. Larry Hogan

Maryland’s second Republican governor since the 1960s held his own during his first General Assembly session — stepping on some toes here and there but also striking compromises on the environment and other issues that earned him respect from unlikely quarters. His reassuring presence in the aftermath of Baltimore’s riots helped calm the city, and his courageous and public battle with cancer served as an inspiration to many. One group recently deemed him the third-most-popular governor in America. He enters his second year in office with enormous political capital; we’ll see how effectively he can use it.
