Maryland Governor Larry Hogan founded An America United, an advocacy group that rejects the extremes of both political parties, works to break the partisan gridlock, and seeks to bring people together to advance bold, common-sense solutions for all Americans.
An America United is working to change America for the better. We support bipartisan, common-sense solutions to create more and better jobs, cut taxes, protect the environment, build our infrastructure, and improve education - just as Governor Hogan has already done in Maryland - to get our nation back on the right track.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is not a career politician. He spent nearly his entire career as a small businessman. Fed up with high taxes, politics as usual, and decades of a one-party monopoly, he started Change Maryland, the largest non-partisan grassroots citizen organization in state history. In 2014, out-numbered in party registration by more than 2-1, and outspent by more than 5-1, Governor Hogan pulled off the biggest upset in America to become only the second Republican Governor elected in Maryland in 50 years.
Governor Hogan quickly got to work and set an example for the nation, accomplishing what many believed was no longer possible: reaching across the aisle, and working together to achieve real bipartisan, common sense solutions. He eliminated the $5.1 billion deficit and cut taxes four years in a row. More businesses are now open and more people are working in Maryland than ever before in state history. Under his leadership, Maryland produced one of the greatest economic turnarounds of any state in the nation. Governor Hogan also accomplished innovative health care solutions and made historic investments in education, transportation infrastructure, and in protecting the environment.
After four years of economic success and bipartisan progress - in one of the bluest states in America - Governor Hogan was overwhelming re-elected in 2018 to a second term, making him only the second Republican to do so in the entire 243 history of the state. His cross-party appeal is evident in polls, which consistently shows an overwhelming majority of all Republicans, Democrats and Independents - nearly 80% of all Marylanders - approve of the job he is doing, which is the highest of any governor in Maryland history. National rankings consistently show Governor Hogan as one of the most popular governors in America. His colleagues recently elected him as the next Chairman of the National Governors Association, and he is the Founder of An America United.
