ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – As Maryland voters choose nominees in statewide, legislative, and congressional races today, the governor’s race takes top billing. Gov. Larry Hogan is a rare two-term Republican governor in a Democrat-leaning state, and he won plaudits from both sides of the aisle for his bipartisan approach and his willingness to challenge Trump. Hogan has endorsed a former Cabinet member in the GOP primary, while Trump has backed a state legislator. Democrats have a crowded gubernatorial candidate field including a former U.S. labor secretary, an author, and the current state comptroller. U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen is facing a primary challenge as he seeks a second term. In the U.S. House, Maryland has one open seat after the incumbent decided to seek a different office.
