Gov. Larry Hogan is as passionate about polling as the professor who directs the Goucher College poll, Mileah Kromer. Her new book, "Blue State Republican: How Larry Hogan Won Where Republicans Lose and Lessons for a Future GOP," traces how Hogan used polling to govern and win elections. What’s his legacy? Does he have a path to run for president?

Kromer will discuss the book at a December 7th fundraiser for the Sarah T. Hughes Center, in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Goucher Poll. The event is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Ungar Athenaeum.
