A Bit of Assistance Against Hogan in Maryland.

1. He said he consulted former President George Bush about running. Unless he was conducting a seance, that means he was getting advice from "Bumbles Mc Crappy Prez" from 2002-08 to help him decide. (That's who we all want as a close political advisor to a U.S. Senator )
2. He was governor of a state with a sizable Democratic majority in the legislature, thus preventing him from doing anything disastrous.
Which brings me to 3. There is a scant bit of difference on policy issues between Hogan and il duce orangino mc wratherfurer of the somnambulist mc wratherfuhrers.
Hope that helps

Hogan himself would essentially be swapping out with Mitt Romney in terms of ideology. So, in other words, not great, not terrible.

The problem is that Romney is from Utah, a red state with a Republican majority. So you might lose a less severe Republican in favor of a more extreme one, but numbers wise, it's all the same.

On the other hand, Hogan is from Maryland, a blue state with a Democratic majority. So we would lose a seat.

I'm less worried about Hogan as I am about the idea of losing a seemingly dependable Democratic seat.
