ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Former Republican Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland says he won’t run for the White House in 2024, after long positioning himself as a possible alternative to former President Trump. Hogan writes in The New York Times that he’s long said he cares “more about ensuring a future for the Republican Party than securing my own future in the Republican Party.” The move is a recognition that while many in the GOP are considering ways to move on from the Trump era, there’s little appetite among primary voters for such a vocal critic. For now, that leaves Trump as a leading figure in the early field of Republican candidates.
