Polls may show him trailing, but Harford County Executive David R. Craig today declared himself the true front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination for governor.
“In reality, I am the front-runner,” Craig told the Baltimore Sun editorial board.
A poll conducted for the Baltimore Sun showed businessman and activist Larry Hogan has built on his lead since February and now is favored by 27 percent of likely GOP voters. His two closest competitors, Craig and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar, stand at 12 percent each. Del. Ron George of Anne Arundel County has 6 percent.
