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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
