Pretty incredible how the Maryland GOP got utterly annhilated in all the major county executive races even with Hogan romping in all of them. They ran 40 points behind him in Baltimore County, Anne Arundel and Frederick.
Hogan's performance had quite literally no downballot coattails.

He scored his party a net gain of 1 seat in State Senate races, with 2 gains (1 in Clinton territory, 1 in Trump territory), and 1 loss (in Clinton territory). There were downballot coattails.

Ironically, this is not the 1st time in recent memory where a party gained seats in the Maryland State Senate while the national environment had tilted heavily in the other direction. Democrats took a net gain of 2 seats in the Maryland State Senate in 2010.

Who was the clown that managed to lose a Clinton seat last year? There's no excuse for that, particularly when people like Jan Gardner were easily winning in light red turf as Hogan was landsliding.

It was an open seat vacated by the Jim Brochin, the Conservative Democrat who lost the Baltimore County Executive Democratic Primary by 17 votes.

To be fair, some places in Maryland tend to just have a less Democratic lean than in presidential elections. Clinton carried Baltimore County by 17, while Olszewski won by 15.

What I do not get is then why did Republicans fail to win the seat in 2014 when the national environment was much better for them?
