ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Democratic Party says it has hired a strategist to focus on "holding Gov. Larry Hogan accountable."
    
Citing a statement from the Maryland Democrat Party, The Baltimore Sun reports that Bryan Lesswing has been hired as a communications adviser.
    
Democrats have not coalesced around a candidate to face Hogan, a popular Republican who has amassed a $5.1 million war chest for his 2018 re-election bid.
    
In recent weeks, Democrats have aggressively sought to tie Hogan to Republican President Donald J. Trump, pressuring the governor to take a position on Trump's controversial travel ban. Hogan has declined to do so.
    
Lesswing most recently worked as a regional press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
