Hogan, along with his running-mate for Lieutenant Governor, Boyd Rutherford, received 884,400 votes, or 51.0% of the total number of votes cast.

Lawrence J. "Larry" Hogan, Jr. is Republican businessman from Prince Georges County. He ran a very competitive, but eventually unsuccessful campaign for Congress in 1992 against the Democratic incumbent, Steny Hoyer. Hogan served as a Cabinet Secretary in the Governor Robert Ehrlich's administration from 2003 to 2007. In 2011, he founded a grassroots organization known as "Change Maryland." The primary purpose of "Change Maryland" is to promote fiscal responsibility within Maryland state government. His father, Lawrence G. Hogan, described elsewhere on this website served in the U.S. Congress from 1969 to 1975 and in 1974 was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican Gubernatorial nomination, losing to Louise Gore. In January 2014 Hogan, Jr. announced his candidacy for Governor of Maryland. Hogan's running-mate for Lieutenant Governor, Boyd Rutherford, is an attorney who previously served in the administration of Governor Robert Ehrlich. On June 24, 2014 Hogan defeated three other candidates in the Republican primary and went onto win the November 2014 General Election.
The "Change Maryland" lapel pin depicted here was given to the author of this website by the candidate's wife, Yumi Hogan, at the Maryland Municipal League Convention on June 10, 2014.

A button that depicts both running-mates in an election is known as a "jugate". The jugate depicting both Larry Hogan and Boyd Rutherford was provided to me for this website by the Maryland Republican Party. The “62” button was secured for me by Steven J. McAdams. The jugate button depicting both Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman was provided to me for this historical website by Christopher Uhl.
