Maryland Gov. Hogan considering 2020 Trump primary challenge

Several Democrats have already announced their intention to run for president in 2020. Many more Democrats are expected to get into the race for the White House, likely making for an extremely crowded field of Dems.

While President Trump will almost assuredly win the Republican nomination for President, it’s not outside the realm of possibility to think he could face opposition in the primary. Two names that are consistently mentioned are potentially challenging Trump are former Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake. Both have been extremely critical of Trump, both of his policy and demeanor.

Now you can add another name to that list of those contemplating challenging Trump in the primary: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

According to Politico, the two-time governor has been going after Trump in recent speeches. Additionally, Hogan is said to be headed to Iowa sometime in March. Of course, Iowa is the always important first caucus state in the country.

Also, the White House is said to have taken notice of Hogan’s supposed interest in challenging President Trump in the primary.

Recently when asked if he indeed have any interest in a primary challenge to the president, Hogan said he is concentrating on his current job as governor of Maryland, but that things can and do change.
