"To his immense credit, Governor Hogan, a Republican in a state where Democrats enjoy a 2-to-1 advantage, has largely fulfilled [his] pledge, rejecting what he called ‘the extremes of either political party’ and taking a pragmatic, centrist approach to leadership that has been a tonic in a venomous era. ... In polarized times, he has stuck to the political middle, from where he has fashioned agreements that will benefit millions of Marylanders. That’s no easy feat."
