Gov. Hogan Says He Is Giving Presidential Run ‘Serious Consideration’

RadioOnFire.com - Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan spoke at the "Politics & Eggs" breakfast at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire on Tuesday and opened up about a possible run to challenge to President Donald Trump in the presidential primary.

When asked if he will run or not, Hogan told the audience, “People have asked me to give this some serious thought, and I think I owe it to them to give it serious consideration."

The "Politics & Eggs" breakfast is a common stop for presidential candidates, though no formal decision has been made by the governor.

WBAL-TV 11's Kate Amara reports a student asked how the governor will balance the budget.

"We've got to control spending," Hogan said. "Republicans and Democrats have to work together."

The outspoken Trump critic also weighed in on the Republican National Committee pledging full support behind the president while taking some swipes at the president.

"I was pretty critical of that. Not that the Republican National Committee doesn’t have the right to support the sitting president. But to change the rules and to insist 100% loyalty to the dear leader it just didn’t sound much like the Republican party that I grew up in," the governor said.
