Maryland Democrats hire strategist to focus on Hogan

February 14th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Democratic Party announced Tuesday it hired a communications adviser to focus on "holding Gov. Larry Hogan accountable."

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

In recent weeks, the Democratic Party has 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.

The Democrats hired Bryan Lesswing to manage the party's "communications and messaging strategy focused on holding Governor Larry Hogan accountable," according to a news release. Lesswing most recently worked as a regional press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Hours later, Lesswing issued his first attack, noting Hogan endorsed fighting the federal government on environmental issues when Democrat Barack Obama was president.
