ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Gov. Larry Hogan did not mince words when asked about Tuesday’s presidential debate during a press conference Thursday.

“I thought it was a train wreck,” the governor said. “It was just out of control. I could barely watch it. It’s what I’ve tried to avoid the past six years, the kind of divisive, lack of civility. I mean, it was just a mess.”

“I don’t think anyone who was undecided watching that debate could decide, ‘This is why I am going to vote for this person,'” Gov. Hogan added.

The first presidential debate between President Trump and Joe Biden featured a chaotic series of bitter exchanges and name-calling between the two candidates.
