Public Policy Professor and Chair Donald Norris spoke to The Baltimore Sun and WJZ 13 about risk-taking in the gubernatorial campaign and Ben Caron’s possible bid for the presidency.
In a Baltimore Sun article about how both nominees for governor have avoided risky campaign strategies, Norris commented on Republican nominee Larry Hogan’s vague campaign promises. “As soon as he gives specifics, that opens him to attack from his opponent,” Norris said.
Norris also spoke to WJZ 13 about former Johns Hopkins head of neurosurgery Ben Carson’s possible bid for the presidency, mentioning that Carson might be too far to the right to become the Republican nominee. Norris called Carson “a tremendous human being” but did not have high hopes for his presidential bid, saying, “He’ll be a very, very long shot. Even experienced politicians making the kind of comments he makes will be out of the race very, very quickly.”
