This is fine but the fact is he just doesn't like Trumph and I believe he is wrong by not supporting the man that the majority of Republicans choose.

So what? You have no idea what he will actually do at the ballot

I'm done with this loser! Every person who doesn't vote, votes for clinton!

Not thrilled that he's not supporting Trump, but he is the best thing to happen to Maryland in a long time.

I don't care what he does at the ballot, he should openly support the Republican nominee, not bad mouth him and possible cost Trumph votes that he deserves. No democratic governor would ever do such a thing. Democrats support thieves and crooks who are many times worse that Trump could ever be.

Regardless of who Governor Hogan is supporting for the next President, I feel He is the best thing that has happened to Maryland in years! Particularly for the Eastern Shore. He recognizes and appreciates the Eastern Shore. He is working for and fighting for us. I am so glad He will be in Crisfield for the clam bake. If you would seriously look at this from a different perspective you may see what really matters. What some people think is a "luxury" visit, may just be an opportunity to get some greatly needed funding for affordable housing. We need even more houses or affordable to be built from the losses of the storm Sandy left us with. Also we greatly need jobs in this area, so our residents do not have to leave the area to make a living! We are the most impoverished county in Maryland! Come on People! We have a lot of families that are in very bad situations financially and otherwise! This man seems to care. Why do you not want him to at least take a look for himself at what we need? It may just lead to some help! Get your head out of the bucket and THINK! For a change, think about others instead of just yourselves!.........Anonymous 101

My goodness 1:01, Sandy was 4 years ago, haven't we spent enough tax payers money yet. There is no need to spend more money on so called affordable housing, all that means is more wasted tax money for those that do not want to work.

Anonymous 1:57, if it were you that lost a house and everything you owned, you may feel differently. Not all that lost homes are "Leaches" on the system. In fact a lot of them had insurance but the pay out was not near enough to rebuild or even to repair their houses or places of residence. Yeah, it may have been four years ago but many families are still displaced. In fact, some are still living on the governments "section 8" program because of the loss of their homes. So, we may just save some of that tax payer's money you speak of if a bit more of grant money were to be used in this fashion. Not to mention the fact that it would increase the tax base of Crisfield and the surrounding areas. Better to spend money on things that matter than to spend it on beautiful new pavements! We need the roads etc. to help bring tourist in but if people do not have a place to live, how can they live here? Try thinking outside of the box for a change. But no, I can bet you are sitting in a nice house with not a worry in the world! Care about others instead of yourself and you may gain some compassion for others......By the way, it is Anonymous 101 NOT 1:01!

What difference will it make if he goes to the convention or not. Only 1 person left running in the GOP. Trump is it.
Crisfield is another story. No, Crisfield has not recovered from Sandy. Come and see for yourselves. Come see the abandoned, condemned buildings. They need to come down. Drive around outside of town. Houses damaged beyond repair, sitting empty. Not enough insurance payout to fix them. Can't afford to tear them down and still live. So, abandoned houses sit waiting to rot into the ground. So much damage to this area. So much still to take care of. 4 years to recover? No. It will be much longer. And only with help.

Appears to me that maybe the homes were under insured. Just how much taxpayer money has to be spent to help these people.

Sharon, obviously 1:57 does not live in Crisfield and was not affected by the floods of Sandy. You are so right! We have a lot more recovery to do! Like you said, just take a look around. Only a select few got assistance with either building, repairing or even demolishing the dwellings affected by Sandy. I am happy for them. but come on, not all of us got the same deal! It seems the ones that had flood insurance, that really did not even touch what needed to be done, where punished for having such insurance. I mean, it would have been better if we had no insurance at all! Again the pay out was so small and if you had insurance you did not qualify for most of the funding that was available. It makes no sense. I honestly feel if Governor Hogan had been in office at the time, we may have gotten more funding. Most people are not looking for a hand out but rather a hand up. The ones that had insurance mostly had a mortgage as your lender requires it. They would not purchase flood insurance otherwise, as it does not pay out like it should. This being said, if the home was totally destroyed, such mortgage had to be paid! Then, in most cases there was not enough left to even pour a foundation! I feel when Gov. Hogan sees such a mess first hand, he may be able to help us more. So you see 1:57, we are far from recovered from Sandy!I think you need to be careful as the same thing could happen to you! Then let us see if you would mind if there were any grants to help you out! Ha, you probably would be the first in line! I know your kind.........

A lot of the houses the Gov tore down were damaged well before Sandy.The hurricane was just the straw breaking the camels back.Some had not seen new shingles,paint or even basic maintenance for many years.

Well said Anonymous 101. @ 1:57, Katrina happened 10 yrs ago and people are still in need of housing. Take a trip to the 9th ward and see the devastation that still exist.

@ 2:11, Yep you are right, a lot of the homes were in not the best shape before Sandy. That is because a lot of people just could not keep up with the repairs and were hanging on to what that had. That was about all they could do. That makes it much more important to get some help for this area. By the way, our insurance was more than adequate. So we thought anyway! It covered the assessed value of the home at the time. The government required the houses that were to be repaired to be elevated at least 6 foot! That alone would have taken a good chunck of the insurance pay out. That would not go very far for the much needed repairs for the water damage and tree damage on the interior of the house. Ha! So, it was not under insured! UH, we are talking at least $100,000.00! The assessed value was no way near that! Just to make it clear the home just has a new roof put on within two years and it had just been painted about he same time! So think about a situation from all angels before you speak. Do not "lump" people in a group as you have done here. Not all of the situations were the same as was so insistently put to us during this life changing event...

Thank You 11:27. At least some one can see the truth! Bet if the same thing had happened to this person, he/she would be singing a different tune! It is the people that can least afford it that got very little assistance! So, where is "waste" here? Probably spent on some that could probably have built a home from the stump without any difficulty.

J.Millard Tawes comes every single year. The RNC comes once in a lifetime for some people. This is a big mistake and proves that Larry Hogan is more of a RINO than a Republican. This will count against him in the next election. If he doesn't follow the will of the People for Trump, he will definitely not follow the will of the people for Maryland.

The only way he will get my vote is if he wins the Primary. I will never vote for a Democrat and he has little chance of winning the Primary if a good Republican runs against him.
