Believe it or not the Midterms are only a few months away. While most people will be watching Congressional races, there are dozens of state houses that could be shaken up along the way. Republicans currently hold the keys to 33 out of 50 governor’s mansions, and are hoping to protect that number and add to their majority.
In the biggest upset of the 2014 election cycle, Republican Larry Hogan beat Lieutenant Governor, now congressman, Anthony Brown to become Governor of Maryland. This was in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2:1. Since taking office in 2015, Governor Hogan has worked tirelessly to lower taxes and bring jobs to the state. He has no primary challenger and will face the winner of a crowded Democratic field this November.
