 Republican Governor Larry Hogan has assiduously tried to distance himself from President Trump.  He has a very high approval rating and by the time the general election campaign begins after the June primary, it’s expected that he may have as much as $10 million dollars in his campaign coffers.

The challenge for MD Democrats: Choose a contender amongst the seven primary candidates who can unseat the popular Republican Governor.   The filing deadline to be on the ballot in June is tonight at 9pm.  Today on Midday, we size-up up the candidates. 

We speak with pollster Dr. Mileah Kromer, William F. Zorzi, reporter for Maryland Matters and  Ovetta Wiggins, who covers Maryland politics and government for the Washington Post.
