BALTIMORE (AP) - Democrats in Maryland appear to be largely unified as the political party faces an uphill battle in ousting the state’s Republican governor.

The Baltimore Sun reports that a lack of infighting among Democrats appears to be one of few bright spots for the party as a Nov. 6 gubernatorial election approaches.

The Sun says that Gov. Larry Hogan’s robust approval ratings show little sign of crumpling. He hopes to become the first Republican governor re-elected in Maryland since 1954.

A number of Democratic contenders are seeking the party’s nomination this year.

At a weekend forum, seven Democratic candidates for governor vowed to support the victor of a June primary. There were no signs of the kind of party discord that has emerged in past cycles.
