How close is Maryland’s governor to making a bid for the White House?

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is no stranger to the national stage, but how close is he to making a White House bid?

Hogan took part in the Politics and Eggs stop in New Hampshire and told attendees he wants to be “in position” for a possible run for president in 2024.



But, according to The Washington Post, he’s still evaluating his chances, especially if former President Donald Trump runs.

Hogan, a Republican in a very blue Maryland, remains popular but a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll shows despite high favorability ratings among voters at 73%, he’d get just 35% of the vote if he ran against Trump.
