Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Larry Hogan (Governor of Maryland, Author, Still Standing) about how high taxes can destroy a blue state, convincing Democrats to vote for a centrist Republican and how to successfully deal with riots and civil unrest. Larry discusses why a small business owner like himself got into politics. He shares how high state taxes and liberal policies were causing a mass exodus out of Maryland similar to what people fleeing California and New York are experiencing now. Democratic legislation had put Maryland in the company of high tax states that have seen their populations decline for lower tax states. He shares what he did to turn things around for the Maryland economy. Larry talks about how he was able to become the Republican governor of a blue state. He shares how he was able to build bridges and convince Democrats that voting for a Republican was in their best interest by focusing on specific issues during the election. Larry also discusses how a centrist governor handled coronavirus and lockdowns. He also shares what Maryland has learned from their reopening and how to keep unemployment low. Larry discusses how they were able to successfully handle the 2015 Baltimore riots that followed the police killing of Freddie Gray. Larry discusses how he dealt with the Black Lives Matter protesters and how the calling in the National Guard stopped looting from getting too out of control. He also discusses how to best address the tearing down of statues.
