Hogan won’t endorse Cox in Maryland’s Governor’s race

July 20th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

The Associated Press has made a call in the Maryland GOP race for governor in favor of Donald Trump-supported Dan Cox over Kelly Schulz, and the Democratic race is still up for grabs with votes too close to call, for now. As of Wednesday morning, Wes Moore has a lead over Tom Perez and both have the lead over Peter Franchot. Given the news of Cox being the projected winner, the current Maryland governor, Republican Larry Hogan, has stated his piece as he supported Kelly Schulz.

Hogan has said he will not support Cox in his run for governor.

"Trump lost Republicans the White House, the House, and the Senate," Hogan said in a tweet. "He’s selfishly colluded with national Democrats to cost us a Governor’s seat in Maryland where I ran 45 points ahead of him. He’s fighting for his ego. We’re fighting to win, and the fight goes on."

Hogan has previously referred to Del. Dan Cox as a "Nut" and a QANON conspiracy theorist.
