Governor Larry Hogan is out of terms and facing retirement… maybe.
There is now a major movement to have Hogan run for Senator.
The bad news for Democrats is that if Hogan decides to run, he is already holding an overwhelming lead over the Democrat incumbent.
Better Than a Democrat?
So, I am no fan of Hogan, but I guess he is better than having a Democrat holding the seat.
If nothing else, it would give the edge in the Senate to Republicans, and that is huge right now.
The downside is that if Trump does decide to run and he wins, this will be another Republican that will fight him tooth-and-nail on a regular basis.
Now to the data…
Hogan has not announced his move, but he is a very popular governor in Maryland.
His approval rating is through the roof on all fronts and goes across all races.
If he chooses to run, current polling has him holding a massive 12-point lead over Senator Van Hollen (49-37).
Hogan has an approval rating among black voters that is floating close to 80 percent and a 71 percent approval among white voters…
"Just under 80% of Black voters approve of Hogan's job performance, while just over 71% of White voters approve…More than 72% of voters in the Baltimore metropolitan area say they approve of Hogan."

There is another option here as well.
There are rumors that Hogan is considering sitting on the sidelines for two years to make a run for president.
I don’t see him being very successful on that front simply because he does not have a big enough profile.
The downside to that is that if Trump does decide to run, Hogan is going to be a HUGE problem for Trump during the campaign and the general election.
How do you guys feel about Hogan? Would you support him running for Senator? For President?
