Md. lieutenant governor says Hogan could run for president as independent

August 11, 2022

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan may have campaigned for a more inclusive Republican Party, but his second-in-command floated the idea Wednesday that Hogan could leave it and run for president as an independent instead. “We could see an independent candidate, possibly, with initials L.H. for president in a couple years,” Lt. Gov. Boyd K. Rutherford (R) told WBAL radio Wednesday morning. “If that happens, I’d be wholeheartedly supportive.” But David Weinman, a spokesman for Hogan’s political organization, An America United, said the governor has no plans to leave the Republican Party, adding, “The lieutenant governor speaks his mind.”
