Gubernatorial candidates Ben Jealous and Larry Hogan again spent a day touting dueling endorsements on Thursday. Jealous picked up support from the Democratic leaders in the General Assembly, while Hogan, the Republican governor, was endorsed by the statewide Fraternal Order of Police.
Bob Gallagher, a board member of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters, said Jealous is dedicated to environmental principles such as promoting renewable energy and fighting environmental injustice.
“Ben is the real deal,” Gallagher said. “He’s not one of these politicians who is looking for an endorsement to check the box.”
