MARYLAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: 2018 Election Results: Is it a Win For Business
Maryland Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Nov. 7.
The 2018 Maryland Elections are over…almost. With the close of the polls late Tuesday night, the voters of Maryland set the course for the governance of the state for the next four years. While the final results for several seats in the Maryland Senate and House of Delegates will not be settled until the count of absentee and provisional ballots (and perhaps a full recount in one or two districts), the incoming makeup for the 2019 Maryland General Assembly appears to be lighter on the Republican side, and a bit more progressive on the Democratic side.
The good news for the business community is that Governor Larry Hogan became the first re-elected Republican governor in Maryland history, since the Mad Men era, easily defeating Democratic challenger Ben Jealous by an almost 14-point margin.
