In a surprising move, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has endorsed Democrat challenger Thiru Vignarajah to become Baltimore City’s next state attorney. The move comes after repeated clashes with incumbent State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby who is notorious for her soft-on-crime record.
Fox News reports:
“For far too long, violent criminals have been allowed to terrorize the streets of Baltimore with impunity,” Hogan said in a statement endorsing Democrat Thiru Vignarajah to be Baltimore City’s state’s attorney.
“Every single day, the people of Baltimore pay a steep price for that failure with lost loved ones, terrified families, and countless lost potential. This crisis rises above partisan politics. It’s not about right or left. It’s about right and wrong,” Hogan continued. “As governor, there is nothing more important to me than the safety of our communities. Thiru Vignarajah will restore trust, hold violent criminals accountable, and make our streets safer.”
Hogan’s endorsement of Vignarajah, who is attacking Mosby over Baltimore’s crime rates also comes as he has been floated as a potential 2024 contender.
