Once Hogan is term-limited, the MD GOP may not have any bench for a statewide race. Andy Harris is far too conservative, and if MD-06 gets changed to be R-leaning, I doubt that Rep will be statewide material.
True, maybe Boyd Rutherford could run but that's it

Pretty incredible how the Maryland GOP got utterly annhilated in all the major county executive races even with Hogan romping in all of them. They ran 40 points behind him in Baltimore County, Anne Arundel and Frederick.
Hogan's performance had quite literally no downballot coattails.

So many Republican candidates last year had the "Hogan Endorsed!" sticker slapped everywhere on their branding. Voters clearly didn't care. Interesting that he's so personally popular but has limited political capital.

==
Also from these maps: As Goes Howard County, So Goes Maryland, it seems.

First - yes I was a bit surprised at the lack of coattails. In countywide races I figured Kittleman would lose but not Schuh.  In the legislature, the districts are so skewed and unfair towards Republicans its not surprising. If we had fair districts in Maryland, republicans would have done better.

Second - Dem State Senators Katherine Klausmeier and Jim Mathias sent out mailers touting how much they work with Gov. Hogan to get re-elected. Mathias lost, and Klausmeier won re-election by 2%, in a district where Dems outnumber Repubs 2 to 1 and she won 61% the last time

Third - It was a big Dem wave year, and it's a heavily Dem state

Fourth - Hogan is well liked around the state. It shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone that he performed as well as he did in Baltimore City and Prince George's county running against the former President of the NAACP no less!

The big question is whether Rutherford has the stomach or guts to run for Government House (Residence of the MD Governor) when Hogan is term limited in 2022 ?

Kathy Szeliga could also be a possibility, albeit a likely sacrificial lamb.

MD GOP has no good options in 2022.
