Gov. Larry Hogan has changed his mind about support and funding from the National Rifle Association. 

Despite winning the organization’s support in the 2014 governor’s race, Hogan told a student activist group at Great Mills High School that he wouldn’t accept support from the NRA if it was offered. 

Hogan also stated that due to his support of gun control measures during his time in office, he wasn’t even sure if the NRA would offer to back him.

In fact, a campaign ad released by Hogan’s team promotes his anti-crime stance, which included gun control as well as his efforts to increase jail time for those repeat offenders who use guns to commit their crimes. 

However, Hogan’s challenger, Ben Jealous, has filled in an NRA questionnaire and accused Hogan of refusing the organization’s help when it was “politically convenient” to do so, according to the Washington Times

Jealous has signed a pledge saying he would deny support from the organization.
