Cardin to Hogan: ‘It’s Not Too Late to Pull’ Loeffler Endorsement

U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) took aim at Gov. Larry Hogan (R-Md.) on Twitter Tuesday evening after the governor’s press briefing updating Marylanders on the state’s vaccine distribution plan.

Hogan was asked by a reporter during the briefing about the 13 Republican Senators who have gone on the record opposing counting some of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes—one of whom is Sen. Kelly Loeffler who is one of the Republican candidates competing in Georgia’s runoff election.

Hogan condemned the senators and said that Biden would be sworn in as president on Jan. 21.

“I think it’s bad for the Republican Party, bad for the country. I think it’s destructive to our democracy and it diminishes our standing in the world,” Hogan said.

On Twitter, Cardin responded to Hogan’s repudiation of the 13 senators by tweeting, “Remember, @KLoeffler is among those seeking to overturn the free and fair election. @LarryHogan endorsed her. It’s not too late to pull that endorsement.”

Hogan published an opinion piece in the Washington Examiner on Nov. 30 endorsing Georgia’s two Republican candidates in the Senate runoff elections.

When asked for comment on Cardin’s tweet, Mike Ricci, the communications director for Hogan, told MyMCM in an email, “We have great respect for Senator Cardin’s leadership, and we are all one Team Maryland.”
