Md. Gov. Choosing Crabs Over GOP Convention

Crabs and clams, not confetti and balloons, are on Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan's agenda for the week of the national GOP convention in Cleveland.

Matt Clark, a Hogan spokesman, confirmed Tuesday that the Republican is planning to attend the annual all-you-can eat seafood feast in Crisfield, Maryland, on July 20.

Hogan already has said he won't be voting for Donald Trump and that he wasn't going to the convention. In an interview this year, Hogan said he was "completely disgusted with national politics in both parties" and is focusing on Maryland.

A spokeswoman for Del. Kathy Szeliga also confirmed that the Republican U.S. Senate candidate will be on the Eastern Shore for the event as well, instead of the convention. Leslie Shedd said Szeliga is looking forward to it.
