Former GOP Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said this week he would not consider running for president in 2024 if his candidacy would help former President Donald Trump.
"I’m a lifelong Republican who wants to support the nominee of the party, whoever that is," Hogan said on NBC News’ Meet the Press. "However, you know, I’ve said before, I didn’t support Trump, I wouldn’t support Trump."
The former governor of Maryland has been a vocal critic against Trump for years.
Host Chuck Todd asked Hogan during the interview: “If you thought your candidacy was going to contribute to ... inadvertently helping Donald Trump, would that be a reason not to run?”
“That’d be a pretty good reason to consider not running. Absolutely," Hogan answered. "I don’t care that much about my future in the Republican Party. I care about making sure we have a future for the Republican Party."
Hogan noted on Twitter that he didn't believe that President Trump would get the GOP nomination for 2024.
“Trump won’t commit to supporting the Republican nominee, and I won’t commit to supporting him," he wrote. "As I have repeatedly said, I fully expect to support the Republican nominee — who I don’t believe will be Trump.”
