Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Szeliga makes no secret of the fact that she has been endorsed by Gov. Larry Hogan in her bid to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Mikulski.
She calls attention to the endorsement in her first ad since the primary, released last week.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of Gov. Larry Hogan,” she says in the ad. “He knows we have to change Washington together.”
Hogan’s endorsement also appears above some of Szeliga’s yard signs.
Szeliga, who represents Baltimore County in the state House of Delegates, pitched herself as Hogan’s ally in Washington at an event Sunday at the B’nai Israel Congregation synagogue in Rockville.
“He needs a partner in Washington — someone who is willing to work with him and someone who knows what it’s like to sign the front of a paycheck and balance a budget,” she said.
But at least so far, Szeliga has not seen the same kind of approval ratings as the Maryland governor.
