Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, who is one of the most popular governors in the U.S. is not officially ruling out a possible primary challenge to President Trump in 2020.

According to Fox News:

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Gov. Larry Hogan appears to have the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state on his mind, as the Maryland Republican increasingly flirts with a potential primary challenge against President Trump.

Fox News confirmed that Hogan’s camp has been involved in talks to appear at "Politics and Eggs," a well-known speaking series held at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College that is a must-stop for White House hopefuls.

A source with knowledge of the conversations said they’ve been underway for a few weeks but “no dates or timeframe has been discussed.”

Hogan won re-election last November to a second four-year term steering the reliably blue state of Maryland, while indirectly criticizing the president during his January inauguration. He has not sought to quiet the speculation about a possible primary bid.

Hogan has stated that the odds are against a primary challenge to Trump but things could change opening up the possibility.
