Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) said Tuesday that he is “completely disgusted with national politics in both parties, Democrats and Republicans,” and has no current plans to endorse any candidate at this time.
Hogan made the comments during a news conference, responding to a question about whether he would support Donald Trump if he wins the Republican presidential nomination.
“I’m trying to focus here in Maryland,” Hogan said. “I don’t know who the Republican nominee is going to be, don’t know who the Democratic nominee is going to be and don’t know if we’re going to have a third-party candidate. So it’s way too early to speculate about who I might consider once I pull that curtain. But I’m not going to get involved. I’m going to stay focused here in Maryland.”
Last month, Trump received an endorsement from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Christie, who dropped out of the presidential race last month, had been Hogan’s choice for the Republican nomination.
At the time, Hogan was asked if he would follow the lead of his fellow blue-state governor. He said that his support of Christie, a close friend who helped him win his election, “doesn’t translate” into a Trump endorsement.
Christie has since come under fire for endorsing Trump for president.
