Maryland’s elected Democrats at all levels seem to be unified in their outspoken denunciations of President Trump. They may want to consider, however, that their actions will have consequences.
The Maryland congressional delegation, with the lone exception of Congressman Andy Harris, R-1st, has been calling on Gov. Larry Hogan to confront President Donald Trump on his so-called “Muslim ban,” and speak out about Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.
In truth, it seems that they don’t really expect Hogan to have much influence on these issues, especially since he did not support Trump for President. They really want just to tie him to Trump so they can attack him in 2018.
It is a pattern, however, that continued in Maryland’s Senate and House of Delegates, which recently authorized Attorney General Brian Frosh to sue President Trump without Gov. Hogan’s say-so.
