September 13, 2013|By Michael Dresser, Baltimore Sun

The three-man race for the Republican nomination for governor in 2014 could yet gain another entrant.

Larry Hogan, chairman of the conservative advocacy group Change Maryland, said Friday that he's is still considering making a run. He said any decision would  come later this year.

Hogan, who said his group has grown to more than 55,000, said he's hearing from many Republicans who are urging him to join the field.

The three announced candidates are Harford County Executive David R. Craig, Anne Arundel Co. Del. Ron George and Charles County businessman Charles Lollar.

Hogan considered a run in 2010 but stood aside in favor of hos old boss, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., whom Hogan served as appointments secretary.

The filing deadline is in February, so candidates still have several months to make up their minds.

The first gubernatorial candidate to officially announce was Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who made his run official in May. On Friday, he and his runing mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, became the first pair to officially file as a ticket with the State Board of Elections.
