Gov. Larry Hogan, offering rare public comments about the election of Republican Donald J. Trump, said Monday that "everyone ought to take a deep breath."
The Republican governor said he would not comment on the president-elect's staff appointments, which have been criticized by senior Maryland Democrats as "deeply troubling."
He addressed what Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh called an "upwelling" of hate crimes by acknowledging "some things are happening across the state."
But he also said the Maryland State Police have received no reports about such incidents.
