Former governor of Maryland Larry Hogan (R) reportedly said on Friday that if the 2024 presidential campaign is still leaning toward a rematch between Vice President Biden and former President Trump, “it may be time” to run as a third party.
As national co-chairman of No Labels, a political organization that has been advocating for a third-party ticket, Hogan now serves. The former governor of Maryland claimed at the time that he was not ruling out a third-party candidacy even though he had previously ruled out running under the Republican Party’s flag.
“An overwhelming majority of Americans are looking for something else. And so, when given the choice between Donald Trump,Joe Biden or neither, most Americans pick neither.” Hogan said during an appearance on CNN.
“If we’re faced with those two choices, look, it’s very understandable why so many people in America would like to have another choice,” he continued.
“We’re in really unprecedented, uncharted waters where we’ve never been as country, and we don’t know what it’s going to be like next spring,” he added.
“I think we may be at the point — we don’t know at this point — but it may be time for folks to have the courage to put the country first, rather than just continue the status quo politics as usual that we’re all fed up with,” he concluded.
