No way. He would not generate turnout b/c progressives can't stand him. Plus Hogan has really good approvals, even in a state like Maryland, he's probably not going to lose.

Progressives need to get rid of the purity crap. You can't always get what you want in politics.

+1. But i doubt they will understand you. Even less - that they will agree..

I'm interested with this race because while Hogan is popular he is also in bad health and while that may sound mean that could scare off voters

Huh Delaney almost lost to literal insane person Dan Bongino. Delaney is a bad candidate.

No governor with over a  70% Approval will lose without incredible money being dumped into the race to drop his approvals. The democrats could better spend their money elsewhere.

I agree funny enough Florida, Ohio, AND Michigan are more likely to elect a D gov than Maryland or Massachusetts

The question is if Hogan's 70% approvals are going to continue to hold - Remember, Scott Brown had 70% approval ratings early on before losing by 8. Even Bob Ehrlich had approval ratings as high as 60% as late as September 2006 before losing re-election by 7. The right candidate makes it possible. The question is whether Maryland and Massachussets Dems are going to punt or produce a powerhouse candidate like Elizabeth Warren or (barfs in mouth) Martin O'Malley.
