September 15, 2016 – Douglas Tallman (Bethesda Magazine).
Gov. Larry Hogan endorsed Republican Amie Hoeber of Potomac to be the 6th congressional district’s representative Wednesday, saying her experience in the Pentagon and as a businesswoman is needed in Washington.
“Amie Hoeber is a smart woman, she’s got a great background, but can she really win in the 6th District in Maryland? I’m telling you, ‘Yes, she can,’ ” Hogan told more than 120 Republican faithful gathered at Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg.
Hogan cited his own “surprise victory” in November 2014 as proof that Republicans can win in Democrat-heavy Maryland.
