Larry Hogan on Civil Rights

Republican Maryland Governor

 


Respect state law on same-sex marriage (even if not my view)

To hear Maryland Democrats tell it, a victory for Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan could lead to the legalization of additional assault rifles, new limits on women's access to contraception and the clock being turned back on gay rights.

But Hogan isn't talking much about those issues on the campaign trail--and he says he respects existing state laws on guns, reproductive issues and same-sex marriage, even if they differ from his own long-held beliefs.

As he attempts an upset in a heavily Democratic state, the Anne Arundel County businessman is trying to fashion his bid around core issues that could draw voters across party lines: cutting taxes, creating jobs and expanding the economy.

I evolved and will not repeal same-sex marriage law

Republican Maryland gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan said his position on marriage rights for same-sex couples has "evolved." In response to a question about whether he voted for the state's same-sex marriage law in a 2012 referendum on it that he was "originally for civil unions," Hogan responded, "I was a supporter of traditional marriage. It's an issue that I fully understand. The voters have made their decision. I support their decision and will uphold the law. I've evolved, I guess, on the issue."

Hogan said marriage rights for same-sex couples, extending in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants and other social issues "are really decided in Maryland. They have no part in this campaign whatsoever. We've been completely focused on the issues that all Marylanders are focused on right now, and that's economic issues."

"Hogan's evolution on marriage equality reflects the reality of many Marylanders who have kept an open heart and open mind on this issue," one pundit noted.

Opposes a transgender rights bill

Hogan, who was a member of former Gov. Bob Ehrlich's administration, told the Washington Post in June he would not seek to repeal Maryland's same-sex marriage law if elected governor. Hogan told the Baltimore Sun editorial board ahead of the June 24 primary that he opposes a transgender rights bill that Gov. Martin O'Malley signed into law earlier this year.
