The Democrat-controlled Maryland General Assembly isn’t exactly packed with fans of Republican Gov. Larry Hogan. But lawmakers needed only a couple of brief minutes, and nary a word of debate, to unanimously reject a Trump-backed delegate’s attempt to impeach Hogan. Del. Dan Cox, a Frederick County Republican who’s running for governor with former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, accused Hogan in his impeachment resolution of a litany of crimes and misconduct, primarily in the governor’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Cox had previously unsuccessfully sued to overturn Hogan’s restrictions and use of emergency powers.
