Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) joined a group of state and local leaders supporting the Paris climate accord on Wednesday, more than six months after Democrats pressed him to add his name to the list in response to President Trump pulling out of the agreement.
Hogan informed the U.S. Climate Alliance of his decision in a letter, saying his administration “will gladly invest our time and energy with state colleagues for this cause.”
Democrats quickly accused the governor of trying to bolster his standing with Maryland voters in an election year.
