Just hours after being sworn in, Hogan took the stage at the Baltimore Convention Center to thank his supporters.

“We’re going to get the government off our backs and out of our pockets so we can grow the private sector, put people back to work and turn our economy around,” Hogan said.

Larry Hogan has promised evidence of a bipartisan administration Wednesday night.

Democrat Keiffer Mitchell is working for the new administration.

“I think we’re moving to the point where we can pass an idea regardless of it’s a Democrat idea or a Republican idea. If it’s a good idea, let’s get things done,” he said.
