RIVA, Md. (AP) -- Republican Larry Hogan has chosen Boyd Rutherford as his running mate in his campaign for governor.
Hogan made the announcement Wednesday night next to a waterside crab house near Annapolis.
Like Hogan, Rutherford was a member of former Gov. Robert Ehrlich's cabinet.
Rutherford, who lives in Columbia, also has served as associate administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration. He was responsible increasing utilization of small business in government procurement.
Hogan is seeking the GOP nomination in Maryland's governor's race.
