Maryland Delegate Patrick Hogan announced Tuesday he will not seek election to a third term, a decision that will allow him to spend more time with his wife and three young children, and explore other career opportunities. Hogan, 34, said he started thinking about his future in state politics soon after winning in the 2010 election and reached the conclusion that his current term would probably be his last. Commuting back and forth from Annapolis to Frederick has been a challenge, especially during the 90 days the Maryland General Assembly is in session each year, he said.
