Brown's loss may cost O'Malley his presidential ambitions

It is refreshing to know that in a few months there will be positive changes in Annapolis and that they are beginning already ("Hogan defeats Brown," Nov. 5).

I believe Governor-elect Larry Hogan will serve Maryland devoid of trickery, smoke and mirrors. The Age of Arrogance is over in Annapolis.

Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown seemingly lost sight of the plight of the common man and woman in this state, and it cost them dearly. Mr. O'Malley became obsessed with testing the waters for president while supposedly governing our state, and Mr. Brown's hollow campaign never gained a lick of traction.

Mr. O'Malley gave seemingly lukewarm support to the Brown campaign from the start. Could it be that the governor had a looming sense of dread about Mr. Brown losing the race and thus blemishing Mr. O'Malley's own presidential aspirations?

I am a registered Democrat but have become intoxicated with the thought that Maryland will once again be a government "of the people, by the people, for the people."

Mr. Hogan placed a much-needed dagger in the heart of arrogance and won. Indirectly, his election could also cost Mr. O'Malley his dream of higher office.

In any case a change is certainly going to come. Let the sanity begin.
