ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Democrat Ben Jealous is pressing his criticism of Gov. Larry Hogan by saying the governor lacks plans to improve education and health care, while Hogan is highlighting bipartisanship and his efforts to restore money for roads.

Jealous arrived at the Maryland Municipal League forum in a school bus Friday with supporters. With the state’s largest teachers union behind him, Jealous went on to criticize the state of dilapidated schools in Baltimore, where a cold snap earlier this year exposed buildings with failing heat.
