ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Republican Larry Hogan is scheduled to officially announce his plans to run for governor of Maryland.
Hogan has scheduled a Tuesday evening news conference to make the announcement to supporters at Mike's Crab House in Riva, near Annapolis.
He says the forecasted snow won't change those plans. The National Weather Service says Anne Arundel County could get 6 to 8 inches of snow Tuesday.
During the administration of former Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, Hogan was secretary of appointments. The 57-year-old real estate broker now leads a conservative, grassroots political organization called Change Maryland.
Hogan lives in Anne Arundel County.
Hogan indicated in November that he was planning to run, joining the GOP field with Harford County Executive David Craig, Anne Arundel Delegate Ron George and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar.
