ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland’s Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, has cast his ballot for the general election and did not vote for either of the two major-party candidates for president.

Hogan’s communications director Mike Ricci tweeted Friday morning that the governor voted by mail last week.

As to who Hogan voted for, Ricci wrote the governor cast his ballot for the late former President Ronald Reagan.

Hogan and Trump have sparred multiple times this year over the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and its response to protests following the death of George Floyd.


In July, Hogan, who is being talked about as a possible presidential candidate in 2024, said the Republican Party needs to be a “bigger tent party” once Trump leaves office.

In 2016, Hogan also declined to vote for Trump, instead writing in his father’s name.

WJZ has reached out to the governor’s office for further comment.

    It’s a wonder he didn’t vote for Biden since Hogan is a Rino.

  2. Hogan is Dem in disguise says:

    Whatever office he decides to run for next, I’ll be sure to cast my vote for Cancer….

  3. Ralph Lowrance says:

    What is not symbolic is the example the governor set by being so silly. One of the two major candidates will be president. Hogan should set an example for the REST of the country in being a Republican who votes for a sane, competent and decent alternative to Trump. Instead, the governor threw common sense out the window — along with his vote. For a DEAD man.

  4. Gerard says:

    Next time he is running I’ll vote for RR.

  5. Diane Joyner says:

    If the dead voted as a bloc, many cities would have better mayors than they do now.

  6. Trump 2020 says:

    Voting for a dead man who has already served two terms and legally could not be elected President even if he were alive. Hogan mocks the electoral process. He should never serve in any office again.

  7. Mark M says:

    well larry next time I should vote for Reagan too, instead of you. how childish of you.

  8. Goth says:

    Fix Baltimore before you cast any vote for others!
