Over 300 supporters packed the Red Brick Station Restaurant in White Marsh on Tuesday night for a rally in support of Gov. Larry Hogan and Baltimore County Executive Republican nominee Al Redmer. Several local Republican candidates joined the rally at which Hogan reflected on his win four years ago, calling it humorously, “one of the biggest upset victories in America.”
“Four years ago, thanks to you, I became the second Republican governor elected in 50 years. With all of your help next Tuesday, I’m going to be the second Republican governor to be reelected in the entire 242 year history of the state, for four more years.”
Hogan credited Baltimore County for the win. “Four years ago, everyone said that we didn’t have much of a chance and, thanks to Baltimore County, Baltimore County made the difference. We won by a pretty big margin,” he said.
Hogan, who has endorsed Al Redmer, Jr. on his run for Baltimore County executive, asked Baltimore County to vote for change. “Al Redmer is going to be a great county executive. He is going to do the exact same kinds of things for Baltimore County that we’re doing in the State of Maryland. He’ll be changing Baltimore County, we’ll be changing Maryland… and both of them will be getting better every year,” Hogan said.
“More than four years ago, more than two thirds of people in the state thought that our state was way off track and heading in the wrong direction, and now after all of the hard work that our whole team has done together…. all of us working together… we’ve made such a difference. We’ve changed Maryland for the better,” Hogan said. “If 70 percent of the people approve of the job we’re doing, and more than two thirds think we are headed in the right direction, maybe they’ll hire us for four more years.”
