Larry Hogan, a former Ehrlich cabinet member and founder of Change Maryland, announced Wednesday that he is the first to cross the fundraising threshold to qualify for the $2.6 million in public funds. 

  “Maryland’s not so big until you have to travel it just about every day,” said Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar on the campaign trail recently.
