Maryland Officials Hopeful Trump Presidency Won’t Hurt State

November 13th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

President-elect Donald Trump found little support in Maryland, where even the Republican governor disavowed him. Now Maryland officials hope long-running benefits from the state's proximity to the nation's capital won't suffer under a Trump administration. Maryland has long benefited from federal grants, agency headquarters and other federal largesse. Between Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and Maryland Democrats, if there's any place where a state's power structure didn't support Trump, it's Maryland. Rep. Andy Harris, the president-elect's only supporter in Maryland's congressional delegation, says he's confident the state's defense industry and bases will benefit, because of Trump's pledge to strengthen the military.
