Gov. Larry Hogan (R) is “at­tempt­ing to cast him­self as a cent­rist in a state in which Demo­crats out­num­ber Re­pub­lic­ans 2 to 1 and in­de­pend­ents make up the fast­est-grow­ing vot­ing bloc. In the past month, Hogan has in­tro­duced his most com­pre­hens­ive le­gis­lat­ive agenda since tak­ing of­fice, of­fer­ing meas­ures that would cap tu­ition in­creases for state uni­versit­ies at 2 per­cent, pro­mote job growth in green in­dus­tries and re­quire com­pan­ies with 50 or more em­ploy­ees to provide five days of paid sick leave.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)
