With the election less than two weeks away Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan made an appearance at the Chesapeake Shipbuilding Corporation in Salisbury yesterday.

His message reflected much of his campaign with criticisms of the O’Malley administration’s tax and regulation policies.

Hogan declared yesterday that Maryland was an anti-business state noting that the state had lost 200-thousand jobs.

The Republican is, of course, running against O’Malley’s Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.

The rally starts at 1 p.m. Thursday at Atwater's, a bakery and cafe. The owner, Ned Atwater, pays employees more than the current minimum wage of $7.25, according to a news release from a group advocating a minimum wage hike.

The group expects a turnout of more than 50 minimum wage supporters.

Senator Chris Coons tried to make the case for a military strike against Syria during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” program saying that it would deter another chemical weapons attack.

He said that not to act would result in Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would continue to slaughter his people with chemical weapons.

The Delaware Democrat in the Senator Foreign Relations Committee voted to support authorization for military force and added an amendment with Senator John McCain to use military force to change the momentum on the battle field for the rebels.
