Former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, has not ruled out the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election. However, he has announced his decision to run for the U.S. Senate seat in Maryland that will be left vacant by Democratic Senator Ben Cardin’s retirement. This has complicated the race for Democrats, who were hoping for an easy win in the blue state. Hogan, who left office with high approval ratings, battled and defeated cancer during his time as governor. He had previously considered a third-party presidential bid, but has since endorsed former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley for the presidency. Hogan has been one of the few Republicans to openly criticize former President Donald Trump and has stated that any potential presidential bid would be to help defeat him. CBS News’ chief election and campaign correspondent, Robert Costa, first reported Hogan’s decision to run for Senate.
