A wistful Gov. Larry Hogan (R) gave a farewell address to Marylanders Tuesday evening, then became even more emotional as he watched the unveiling of his official portrait in the Governor’s Reception Room at the State House.

But it was delivered with several doses of humility and wonder at the honor of serving as governor, along with abundant hope for the future.
