Hours after the votes were counted this week, Republican Governor-elect Larry Hogan Jr. promised a bipartisan approach saying "It doesn't matter to me whether you're Republican or Democrat...we're all going to work together, roll up our sleeves, and work in a bipartisan fashion reaching across the aisle." Sounds great, but the General Assembly is still controlled by Democrats, big majorities in both houses.  How is their agenda going to mesh-- or not--with Governor Hogan’s? To start understanding the new dynamic in Annapolis, we’ve invited two leaders in the House of Delegates.  First, House speaker Mike Busch joins us on the line, then we hear from Republican Whip Kathy Szeliga.
