Hogan’s statewide bus tour stops in Chestertown

CHESTERTOWN — With mail-in ballots for next month’s primary election beginning to be sent out to voters, Hogan for Maryland is on the home stretch of a 10-day Back to Work Bus Tour that started April 5.

What Republican Larry Hogan’s campaign office described as “a statewide grassroots tour” is taking the former two-term governor, who is seeking the state’s open U.S. Senate seat, across the state and covering hundreds of miles.

On Saturday morning, April 13, Hogan was at the Chestertown Farmers Market, accompanied by Kent County’s state Delegate Jay Jacobs.

A total of 17 candidates — seven Republicans and 10 Democrats — are running for the seat currently held by Democrat Ben Cardin, who is retiring at the end of his third term.

The primary election is May 14.

Hogan is favored on the Republican side, while the race for the Democrats has come down to U.S. Rep. David Trone and Angela Alsobrooks, the county executive of Prince George’s County.

Alsobrooks came to Chestertown in late February for a “meet and greet event” at Minary’s Dream Alliance and hosted by the Democratic Club of Kent County.

In December, Trone kicked off his fact-finding tour of higher education institutions in the state at Washington College. According to a post on the college’s website, Trone spoke to an audience of students and community members. Earlier that day, he had spoken with members of the college’s Board of Visitors and Governors and President Mike Sosulski about education in general and Washington College in particular.
