Reminder: Republican Larry Hogan Will Turn Control of the Senate Over to Republicans 

A new interview with Mitch McConnell, comments from Republicans, and Larry Hogan’s own words confirm that Hogan would turn over control of the Senate to Republicans and “be a consistent vote” for a Republican Senate majority. Hogan, the self-proclaimed “real Republican,” was hand-selected and “persuad[ed]” to run by Mitch McConnell in his bid to build a Republican “majority in the Senate,” according to McConnell’s own recent interview. 

From DSCC spokesperson Amanda Sherman Baity: “Marylanders know that electing Republican Larry Hogan would turn the Senate over to Republicans so they can pass a national abortion ban and push forward Republicans’ extreme policies. That’s a disqualifying agenda for Maryland voters.”

Facts on Larry Hogan’s “lifelong” affiliation with the Republican Party:

  • Hogan would “be a consistent vote” for a GOP in the Senate. Conservative radio show host Brian Kilmeade analyzed in a recent episode how Larry Hogan would be an “advantage” to Donald Trump and would be “a consistent vote” with Republicans in the Senate. [The Brian Kilmeade Show, 5/15/24]
  • Hogan was hand-selected to run by Mitch McConnell. Recent reporting from the New York Times detailed how Mitch McConnell said he “persuad[ed]” Larry Hogan to run for governor as part of his plan to build a Republican “majority in the Senate.”
  • Hogan committed to caucusing with Republicans. During an interview with Axios, Hogan was asked, “Well are you, are you going to caucus with the Republicans?” Larry Hogan replied “Of course I am. I’m a lifelong Republican.”
