Maryland Democrats Hire Strategist to Focus on Hogan

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Democratic Party says it has hired a strategist to focus on “holding Gov. Larry Hogan accountable.”

Citing a statement from the Maryland Democrat Party, The Baltimore Sun (http://bsun.md/2kVfZBh ) reports that Bryan Lesswing has been hired as a communications adviser.

Democrats have not coalesced around a candidate to face Hogan, a popular Republican who has amassed a $5.1 million war chest for his 2018 re-election bid.

In recent weeks, Democrats have aggressively sought to tie Hogan to Republican President Donald J. Trump, pressuring the governor to take a position on Trump’s controversial travel ban. Hogan has declined to do so.

Lesswing most recently worked as a regional press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
