Hogan also outlined some social concerns in an interview with The Associated Press, including plans to take a greater interest in pardons and commutations and fighting heroin.
Hogan said that while he considers himself to be a tough law and order candidate, he believes sometimes the criminal justice system makes mistakes, and the clemency process provides a way for a governor to decide whether a person's case deserves a second look or a second chance.
