A Republican governor from Maryland visited New Hampshire Tuesday, where he teased a presidential run during a press conference.
This is not something that I was really focused on,” Gov. Larry Hogan said. “A lot of people have been approaching me, probably since around the time of my inauguration in January. People have asked me to give this serious consideration, and I think I owe it to those people to do just that.”
Hogan did not specify which people exactly were pushing him to run.
“I’m not going to launch some kind of a suicide mission – I have a real job real day job that’s important to me, for the people of Maryland – unless I thought there was a path to victory,” he said, stressing that the filing date for candidacy is not until November.
He later remarked on what he thinks is a changing Republican Party – and one that he is unhappy with.
“It didn’t sound very much like the Republican Party that I grew up in, working for Ronald Reagan and supporting George Bush,” he said, referring to the Republican National Committee voting to wholly support Trump in 2020.
“I’m for a return to a more traditional Republican Party,” he continued.
In 2016, America voters rejected the “traditional Republican Party” and its history of doing precisely nothing for conservatism in America, in favor of President Donald J. Trump who promised to shake up the political establishment. Still, some like Hogan long for the days losing politely to rabid leftists on every issue over the past half-century.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld is one of those Republicans. He announced his intention to run against Trump during the 2020 race last week.

WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
