Skip to comments.Hogan: DeSantis Too ‘Focused on the Base’ to Win Outside of Florida

Outgoing Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was too focused on the Republican Party base to win national office.
Hogan said, “The party has been focused on firing up the base, and they have done a terrible job at reaching swing voters in the middle.”
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is often cited by conservative Republicans as somebody they might want to see run for president. You’ve called him an important voice, one of the important voices for the party. Do you think he would be good at what you’re talking about in terms of reaching out to people in the middle?”

His base isn’t just in FL. America is watching.
Hogan is a repulsive toad,
Reagan didn’t win Maryland against the colossal boob Jimmy Carter. Says enough about the fools in that state, other than on the Eastern Shore, in the western mountains, and north horse country. The rest is packed with federal employees, academics, and double-domed intellectuals.
Ron seems okay though Id have to hear his actual platform.
The Maryland Nut Job who is totally out of touch with reality.
He hates DeSantis and likes Trump.
Focusing on the base is the only way to win. Trump lost enough of his base chasing “black and hispanic unemployment numbers”, that would have covered the margin of cheating.
Anybody here for a laugh (unintended) from this person?
Hogan doesn’t know the first thing about being a Republican.
Reagan won MD in ‘84 however.
I agree- that’s why he’s on CNN- nobody is watching
He praised the J6 committee and said the people who were there deserve what they get
Blue state fatboy needs to shut it.
Lockdown Larry totally swings ‘Rat.
He and the whale from NJ need to get room.
Well that’s one strike against him. He seems be against illegal immigration though what is he willing to do to stop it?
I will give him kudos on illegals
The GOP lost the base. Desantis is right to shore it up. I wouldn’t vote for Hogan.
Sending them to Matha’s Vineyard is funny enough but what is his actual plan to stop it? Before Trump even plenty of Dems were against Illegal Aliens (though obviously they did nothing about it)
I once inadvertently insulted this fat turd to his face. I felt pretty bad about it afterwards. Now I wear it as a badge of honor. I despise him.
