Maryland treasurer asks Larry Hogan to continue ‘open opposition’ to Donald Trump

November 16th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Maryland's Democratic treasurer called on Republican Gov. Larry Hogan Wednesday to continue his "open opposition" to Donald Trump, whose surprise election last week sparked protests around the nation.

Treasurer Nancy Kopp said at the Board of Public Works meeting she "appreciated" the way Hogan and Democratic Comptroller Peter Franchot did not support Trump, a Republican, during the election.

"I trust you will continue to speak out if and when the new regime reverts to the use of despicable language, threats and actions, and to also speak out now when this type of behavior appears in our communities," Kopp said.

Hogan was absent from the meeting. He was replaced by Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, who said "as far as the governor and I are concerned, we are focused, as we always have been, on Maryland."
