Is Maryland following in New Jersey’s footsteps, ensnared by the false promises and belligerent bravado of a “kindred” Republican governor? It’s hard not to draw that parallel when you look at how closely aligned Messrs. Christie and Hogan are.
We cannot solve the drug crisis in America by blaming Mexicans and building walls. Trump still believes that the opioid crisis is caused by “drug pushers and drug dealers” from Mexico. In fact, most of the people becoming addicted to opioid drugs are prescribed to them legally by medical providers.
A Trump administration initiative to combat the nation’s opioid epidemic is showing some early signs of success in Maryland but advocates warn it is unlikely to bring rapid change to a crisis killing 91 Americans each day.

Like the day of reckoning described in the Bible, four proverbial horsemen are steering the GOP toward potential doom.

While the Maryland General Assembly's presiding officers rely on staff to read and respond to email on their state accounts, Gov. Larry Hogan is in the driver's seat of his. The 59-year-old Republican is blunt with his staffers when it comes to defending his administration and protecting his image.

Donald Trump may, or at least should, face sharp questioning from two separate quarters in Tuesday night's Republican debate in Las Vegas.
