As Republicans across the country try to coalesce behind their controversial presidential nominee next week, Gov. Larry Hogan won't be among them.
Some deride the Republican governor for his repudiation of Trump. Some forgive him. Some agree with him. Others are baffled that he couldn't stay quiet.
The disagreement has exposed fault lines in Maryland's minority party and its leadership at a time when its fortunes are turning — with popular Hogan at its helm, record numbers of Republicans in local office and its best fundraising in more than a decade.
Hogan is one of two sitting Republican governors to disavow their party's presumptive nominee this year and one of only two Republicans elected governor in Maryland since 1966.
