Glenn F. Ivey, the former Prince George's County State's Attorney who is seeking the House seat being left open by Rep. Donna F.

Larry Hogan's inauguration address was 100 Snore Street, Annapolis. But glorious speechifying is not what Marylanders voted for when they made Hogan our governor. What they voted for was: The candidate who wasn't Anthony Brown. A successful businessman who criticized taxes and the size of Maryland's government.
Gov.-elect Larry Hogan and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown greeted lawmakers together at the State House on the General Assembly's opening day.

While Larry Hogan triumphed in the Maryland governor's race, his fellow Republicans won legislative and the county council seats in Dundalk for the first time in decades, completing a dramatic partisan shift in one of the state's once reliably Democratic Party strongholds. The realignment culminated after years of disaffection and may create a lasting transformation.
Republican Gov.-elect Larry Hogan and Democrat Peter Franchot, the state's comptroller, met up Monday in this historic Eastern Shore town for a joint tour of downtown businesses and a public show of bipartisan holiday spirit.
Nearly $275,000 in donations from the Baltimore area flowed into two political committees supporting the successful bid of Larry Hogan and Boyd Rutherford for Maryland State House in 2014, according to campaign-finance data, compared to a little over $1 million going to the failed campaigns of Democrats Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman.
As the Democratic Party licks its wounds from its gubernatorial defeat in Maryland, our street-level view reveals a central, substantive error on the part of politicians of both parties: Candidates from Baltimore to Annapolis to Washington continue to act as though they are smarter than ordinary citizens.
