we are at another time for choosing. I refuse to give up and accept that the best days of the GOP – and of America – are a thing of the past. If you won’t either, sign up now.
“To those who say our political system is too broken and can’t be fixed, I would argue that we have already shown a better path forward. And if we can accomplish that here in Maryland, then there is no place in America where these very same principles cannot succeed.”- Governor Larry Hogan
While calling on the Biden administration to take action to end the bottlenecks in the supply chain that threaten the nation’s economic recovery, Governor Hogan continues to lead in Maryland on helping to address this crisis. Yesterday, Governor Hogan broke ground on the Howard Street Tunnel expansion project, which will generate 14,000 jobs and significantly grow capacity by reconstructing the freight rail tunnel to accommodate double-stacked container trains to and from the Port of Baltimore.
With murder skyrocketing across the country, Governor Hogan has been a national advocate for re-funding the police and common sense policies to get tough on violent crime. According to new polling, this push has the overwhelming support of Marylanders including black Marylanders. Last week, Governor Hogan announced a series of actions to tackle the violent crime crisis, including fast-tracking and expanding neighborhoods safety grants program, ordering a review of funding for the state’s attorney’s office, and urging the Baltimore Police Department to redouble tactical efforts in high-crime areas.
According to a report in Fox Business, earlier today, Governor Hogan joined 14 other Republican governors in calling on the Biden administration to take immediate action to address the national supply chain crisis. While the national supply chain crisis threatens the nation’s economic recovery, the Port of Baltimore continues to run smoothly and add more ships. Under Governor Hogan, Maryland has made key strategic investments in the vital infrastructure of the Port, including a recent dredging project to allow two massive container ships to tie up at the Port at once.
In an op-ed earlier this month in The Wall Street Journal, Governor Hogan applauded recent Republican gains in Virginia and New Jersey as a model for how the Republican party can win elections by focusing on “common sense solutions” and offering a “unifying message.” According to a recent report in The New York Times, Governor Hogan is warning that “Trump cancel culture” poses a threat to this success as the former President continues to attack and undermine Republicans who he deems insufficiently loyal, including Republican House members who voted for the bipartisan infrastructure deal and governors who certified the 2020 election results.
