Larry Hogan is not planning to run for President of the United States as a Republican. A former Maryland governor fears his candidacy could accidentally help former President Donald Trump profit.
A long list of Republican candidates for the White House, according to Logan, will cause an even greater divide within the Republican Party. According to Hogan, Trump could benefit from this.
“Many talented Republican leaders are capable of stepping forward and leading the way,” Hogan wrote in a guest essay on Sunday. The New York Times. “But to me, the risk of Trump dropping out of the candidacy is too high.” He reiterated that “the tide is finally turning” and that Republican voters are tired of the hassles and want change.
The popular Hogan resigned as governor of Maryland in January. His second term ended. He did some preliminary work to run for president, but quickly came to the conclusion that if his candidacy gave Trump any wind, he would have to drop it.
Trump himself did not hide how he feels about the opposing candidates: “The more enemies, the better.” In 2016, seventeen Republican candidates ran for America’s highest office, with Trump winning the most votes.
So far, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, businessmen Vivek Ramasamy and Terry Johnson have expressed their desire to contest the presidential election. Ron DeSantis is seen as Trump’s most promising challenger. Other names in circulation include Mike Pence, Michael Pompeo, Chris Christie, Asa Hutchinson, Christie Nome, Chris Sununu and Glenn Youngin.
