  • Outgoing Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said GOP gubernatorial nominee Dan Cox is unfit for the office.

  • Hogan blamed the Democratic Governor's Association, who he said helped Cox win the nomination.

  • On CNN on Sunday, Hogan said he is not sure if he will vote for the Democratic nominee, Wes Moore.

Maryland's Republican Gov. Larry Hogan blasted Dan Cox, the Trump-endorsed Republican nominee for governor.

"I don't think there's any chance that he can win," Hogan said of Cox on Sunday during a CNN interview with Jake Tapper. "He really is not a serious candidate."

Cox has denied the results of the 2020 presidential election, currying former President Donald Trump's favor.

 

Hogan, a longtime critic of Trump, criticized the Democratic Governor's Association for spending over $1 million on TV ads in Cox's favor. In the Maryland primary elections, Cox beat a Hogan-backed, moderate GOP candidate, Kelly Schultz.

"There's no question this was a big win for the Democratic Governor's Association that I think spent over $3 million trying to promote this guy," Hogan said Sunday. "It was basically collusion between Trump and the national Democrats, who propped this guy up and got him elected."

Hogan added that the November midterm elections are "going to be a different situation," noting he does not believe Cox will get the Republican support he needs to win.

Cox will face Democratic nominee Wes Moore, a political newcomer. On CNN, Tapper asked Hogan if he will break from his Republican party and vote for Moore.

"You know, I'm going to have to make a decision about that between now and November, but I'm certainly not going to support this guy," Hogan said, referring to Cox. "He's not qualified to be governor."
