Poll Shows Hogan With Solid Approval, Leading Potential Challengers

Marylanders are still pretty happy with the job Governor Hogan is doing for the state. A new Gonzales Poll puts Hogan’s approval rating at 70-percent, a figure that hasn’t changed much since he took office in 2015.

The margin of victory for Hogan jumps to 15 points if he was to square off against Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenentz.

Bill Cosby Says He’s Ready For His Retrial

Bill Cosby says he’s ready for his retrial in April. He told reporters at a restaurant in Philadelphia last night “we’re ready.” In June, the 80-year-old comedian went to trial over charges he drugged and molested a former Temple University employee in 2004 inside his suburban Philadelphia home. The judge declared a mistrial after the jury deadlocked. Cosby’s trial was delayed until the spring so his new legal team could get up to speed. He has insisted the sexual encounter was consensual. “The Philadelphia Inquirer” reports some members of the media were tipped off about last night’s dinner and were invited to document the event.
