Former Maryland governor Larry Hogan has stated that he would not seek the GOP presidential nomination in 2024. Hogan cites his wish to avoid assisting former president Donald Trump achieve re-election as the key reason he is not running.
Hogan, who served as governor of Maryland for eight years, has said that he does not want to put his family to “another grueling campaign” and is more concerned with “securing the future of the Republican Party than ensuring my own career in the Republican Party.” On the next election, he is “cautiously optimistic” yet “extremely concerned.” We cannot risk losing four consecutive elections by selecting Donald Trump as our nominee, for reasons that are self-evident.
Eventually, the Republican Party must “Hogan, a vociferous opponent of Trump, has suggested that the GOP should “move on” and that “many qualified Republican leaders with the ability to step up and lead” are available. I would love to help Mr. Trump win the nomination, but the stakes are too high for me to risk becoming engaged in another multi-car collision.”
Larry Hogan said that the GOP must stop prioritizing “personality over substance” and criticized the party for lacking a 2020 campaign strategy. He said that Republican supporters have been kept in the dark for far too long on the party’s ideals outside of blind support for President Trump. A party founded on principles is better than a personality cult.
Republican voters, tired of the drama, are becoming more amenable to new leadership, and the tide is moving, according to Hogan.
The “angry, theatrical politics” and demands for “bigger government” that many current Republicans participate in are, sadly, nothing new, he said. Such “empty calories” cannot support the long-term alliance needed to restore the United States.
