Hogan: ‘Republicans can’t count on my vote’

News: Former Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan is insisting in a new ad that Republicans can’t take his vote for granted in the Senate.

Hogan’s campaign rolled out its second TV ad of the general election on Tuesday. The goal: Convince Maryland voters that the well-regarded two-term governor will be an independent-minded senator.

“If they want my vote, they will have to do what is right for Maryland — not one political party,” Hogan says direct-to-camera in the ad.

Hogan needs to appeal to a massive chunk of left-leaning voters if he has any chance of beating Democrat Angela Alsobrooks during a presidential cycle in deep blue Maryland.

Democrats, of course, are scoffing at Hogan’s claims. The DSCC started running ads the night of Hogan’s primary win, painting the candidate as a “lifelong Republican.”
