David Lashar acknowledges his bid to become Maryland’s next governor is a long shot. But, he says, this is not a no-shot situation. Nationally, Democrats are feeling the drag from President Joe Biden’s low approval ratings and an economy heading for recession — and historically, the party in control of the White House has taken losses in its first midterm election. Closer to home, Republicans have nominated a candidate for governor, Dan Cox, who attended then-President Donald Trump’s Jan. 6, 2021 rally at the Ellipse before a mob overran the U.S. Capitol building. One long-time Republican has disavowed the party after Cox’s win, while GOP Gov. Larry Hogan says he won’t support Cox.
