In one of the the biggest Election Day shockers, Republican Larry Hogan pulled off a stunning victory in deep-blue Maryland to become only the second GOP governor in the state since 1969.

What’s more, Mr. Hogan defeated Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, the Democratic nominee, in a landslide. Final results showed Maryland voters went for the Republican 54 percent to 45 percent.

“What a historic night in Maryland,” Mr. Hogan said to an elated crowd at his victory party in Annapolis. “They said it couldn’t be done here in Maryland — but together, we did it!”

The trouncing of Mr. Brown also served as a rebuke to Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley, whom Mr. Brown served under for two terms, and President Obama, who campaigned for Mr. Brown.

“This is an election that is going to make a difference — maybe send a message to the White House, ” said Maryland voter Mark Winters, a chief financial officer for a small manufacturing firm who cast his ballot for Mr. Hogan in Centreville on the state’s Eastern Shore, a Republican stronghold.
