ANNAPOLIS, MD—Former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan on Friday announced that he will run for U.S. Senate this year.

“It’s official – I’m running for the United States Senate to fight for Maryland and fix the broken politics in Washington,” Hogan said on Friday. “Like the vast majority of Marylanders, I’m completely fed up with politics-as-usual and the politicians in Washington who are more interested in arguing than getting anything done for the people they represent.”

“Enough is enough. We can do so much better, but not if we keep electing the same kind of typical partisan politicians,” Hogan added. “That’s why I’m running – not to serve one party – but to stand up to both parties, fight for Maryland, and fix our nation’s broken politics. It’s what I did as Maryland’s governor, and it’s exactly how I’ll serve Maryland in the United States Senate. Let’s get back to work.”

Hogan, 67, was first elected governor of Maryland in 2014 and won re-election in 2018 before leaving office in January 2023.
