ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Larry Hogan became the first Republican governor to win re-election in Maryland since 1954 by beating Democrat Ben Jealous on Tuesday.

Hogan, who is only the second Republican governor to win two terms in Maryland's history, won in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1.

Maryland Rep. Andy Harris, the state's lone Republican congressman, defeated Democrat Jesse Colvin in the district that includes Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Voters approved two constitutional amendments. One will require casino revenue set aside for schools to be used to enhance education spending above state funding formulas.

The other will allow residents to register to vote at their polling places on Election Day.
