Hogan: Maryland will not get into a bidding war in Commanders stadium hunt

March 16, 2022

Gov. Larry Hogan says Maryland would like to keep the Washington Commanders in the state, but it will not “get in a bidding war” to build a new stadium for the NFL franchise. Hogan made the comments Tuesday in Annapolis in response to a reporter’s question at a press conference on a new workforce development initiative for state jobs. “I think [the Commanders are] using everyone back and forth as they have been for eight years. They’re negotiating, pitting everyone against each other,” said Hogan, suggesting the Commanders are setting Maryland, D.C. and Virginia against one another to get a better stadium deal.
