Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has renewed speculation about him mounting a primary challenge against President Donald Trump in the aftermath of what Hogan called the “very disturbing” and “unsavory” redacted Mueller report.

According to the Washington Post, he voiced his opinion that the only reason Trump isn’t mired in obstruction charges is that his aides stopped him from carrying out his ideas.

Hogan attended Politics and Eggs in New Hampshire Tuesday, a common pitstop for presidential hopefuls. He also said that he’s planning a trip to Utah at the invitation of former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

“I’m not just wandering around the states, hitchhiking,” Hogan told the Post.

He added, though, that he didn’t want to launch a “suicide mission” and that he wouldn’t get in the race just “to bruise” Trump.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R) has already officially announced that he will primary Trump in 2020.
