Skip to comments.Hogan wants Republican Party to return 'to its roots'
Posted on 12/22/2020 6:27:24 AM PST by RandFan
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he "definitely is going to be part of the discussion" in helping to shape the Republican Party after President Trump leaves the White House.
The popular two-term governor with an expanding national profile told Fox News in an interview that he’d like to see the GOP "return to its roots" as a "more Reaganesque, bigger tent party" that can appeal to more voters.
Hogan is one of more than a dozen Republican politicians who are considered potential contenders for the party’s next presidential nomination. But with the president flirting with a 2024 bid to try and return to the White House, much of the field of possible hopefuls may be frozen in place as Trump will continue to dominate the GOP even after his term as president ends.
But Hogan, a vocal Trump critic and a pragmatic politician known to reach across the aisle, is one of the few potential presidential contenders who may not be affected by Trump’s flirtations.
"I’ve been a strong proponent of us returning to a more Reaganesque, bigger tent party where we can appeal to more people and reach out to large swaths of the electorate that have been turned off to the Donald Trump message," he argued.

Another RINO that doesn’t get it!
Trump and his supporters are not going away. You will learn the hard way.
Predictable. The GOP is dead. Someone bury this pig.
They had better. RINOs like RINOmney and his like minded marhmallow couraged spineless nothings deserve little better than torture and are not even worth wasting our votes on. (Oh well, we know those votes will be stolen.) How much longer do we put up with this?
Sounds like you need to switch to Green Party, Larry Hogan. Neither R nor D wants you.
He cites Reagan, but is EXACTLY the type of politician who HATED Reagan back in the 1980s.
Written by Fox. Give me a break.
Don’t believe anything to come out of Faux !!
They always want to push their point.
Let’s, drive down their viewership to ZERO.
Then we can say :
WE DID IT !!!
Hulk Hogan would be a better governor for “Murrahland.”
Every time I hear a politician or media type use President Reagan to attack President Trump I realize how deluded and dishonest they are.
They never say what they think the so called “roots” of the Republican Party are.
They are just trying to advance themselves by dishonestly attacking President Trump.
What a loser !!!
Still here !!
The Republican Party is dead to me. Dig a hole and scrap them off in it.
F off Rino!
rino good ole boys club personified. if there are 70 million Trumpsters we should be able to primary these jokesters out of the party in 2- 4 yrs.
Dude has brain damage...
It’s roots were fighting a war to rid the country of racist treasonous Democrats, so i agree.
Hogan is a buffoon, he said “he’d like to see the GOP “return to its roots” as a “more Reaganesque, bigger tent party” that can appeal to more voters.”
Trump won more votes than any Republican in history and had more diversity in his vote total any Republican since before 1960, the couldn’t be more clueless and tone deaf.
