COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — It’s the final push before Maryland’s general election. Larry Hogan and Democrat Anthony Brown have just one more weekend to sway the voters.

Both candidates are out in force, trying to pick up every last vote.

Rick Ritter was out for a busy night on the campaign trail.

Hillary Clinton made her way to Maryland Thursday to show her support for Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown. Both Brown and Hogan seem to be neck and neck, pushing for every last vote.

The clock is ticking, and early voting is in the books.

“I’m tired of paying taxes,” said Vernon Gauss, Hogan supporter.

“I have no problem telling you I voted for Brown Ulman,” said Stephanie Wall, Brown supporter.

Maryland is inching closer to election day and both campaigns are in full swing. It’s one final push to become Maryland’s next governor.

In College Park, heavy-hitter Hillary Clinton praised what the O’Malley Brown administration has done in the past eight year.

“But it can only continue to lead if you elect leaders who will make sure that these policies that have been started built on the last eight years continue,” Clinton said.

A positive agenda she says is certainly making a difference.

“Because that’s what you’ll get with Anthony Brown. He has what it takes to bring people together,” said Clinton.

In Harford County, it was nothing but smiles for Republican candidate Larry Hogan and hundreds of his supporters.

“It’s really encouraging. And as we travel around the state, we have a lot of people excited,” Hogan said.

“He has the experience and leadership and philosophy the country needs,” said Michael Capasso, Hogan supporter.

After a quick stop at an early voting center, Hogan met with businesses and residents in Havre de Grace, pointing to a loss of jobs and businesses.

“I think that people regardless of their party affiliation are just really ready for a change of direction in our state,” said Hogan.

With just days left, one new poll shows Hogan ahead of Brown by five points. Plenty of voters are still undecided.

“Well, that’s what we’re working on and we’ve been putting a lot of shoe leather out on the streets,” said Hogan.

“So please don’t miss this opportunity,” Clinton said. “When you leave here, go straight to the early vote center, fill out a ballot, vote for Brown and Ulman. Just be in line by 8 o’clock.”

Governor Christie will be back Sunday to campaign with Hogan for a fourth time. On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama will make her way to Maryland to support Brown.
