Hogan blasts expansion of Maryland attorney general’s powers

February 17th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan on Friday sharply criticized a resolution passed by the General Assembly this week to empower the attorney general to sue the federal government without his permission — a resolution swiftly approved by the Democrat-led legislature due to concerns that President Donald Trump's policies could hurt Maryland.

Hogan, speaking on WBAL-AM's "The C4 Show," described the resolution as "horrible" and "crazy." He also took issue with the Maryland Democratic Party's announcement this week that they had hired someone to "manage the party's communications and messaging strategy focused on holding Governor Larry Hogan accountable."

Hogan, a popular Republican in a heavily Democratic state, said Democrats have focused for more than a month of the state's 90-day legislative session on meddling in Washington politics and undermining him.
