Gov. Hogan: Just wait for next 7 years

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday made his most definitive public statement yet that he plans to seek a second term.

"We're just getting started," Hogan told a crowd of more than 1,000 gathered for an Annapolis party. "You ain't seen nothing yet."

The Republican governor delivered what sounded like a stump speech during a free party he hosted at the Naval Academy stadium to celebrate the anniversary of his inauguration.

After reviewing his first year in office, Hogan told a cheering crowd that "if we can get all these things done in one year while dealing with riots and cancer, just imagine what we can do over the next seven years!"

While Hogan has never signaled he planned just one term in office, he has demurred in the past when asked about his re-election plans.

Thursday night's invitation to supporters to imagine another seven years under his tenure comes on the heels of a campaign finance filing that shows he raised $1.6 million during his first year in office.

Hogan's predecessor Martin O'Malley raised about $1.45 million during his inaugural year as governor, according to online campaign finance records.
