Larry Hogan: Maryland’s Bipartisan Success Story

From a Wall Street Journal commentary by Larry Hogan headlined “Maryland’s Bipartisan Success Story”:

The chaos around the vote for House speaker showed again how our politics have devolved into a circus in which drama on Twitter and cable news is a bigger priority than getting things done. The future of the Republican Party and our nation doesn’t have to be this way.

In 2014 I was a populist outsider businessman fed up with the career politicians in Annapolis who had raised taxes 40 times in eight years and run the state’s economy into a ditch. I was elected by the same voters who would support Donald Trump: working-class and suburban men and women who were understandably disillusioned with our political leadership. Like me, they’d had enough and were demanding change.
