Despite the fact that Donald Trump ran for president as a Republican, Maryland’s GOP Governor Larry Hogan declined to endorse the businessman during the presidential race, and even wrote his father’s name in on Election Day. But now Hogan is looking to forge a relationship with Trump’s administration.
Hogan told WBAL-TV that he’s already talked to the vice president, and as a good relationship with Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus. He also met with cabinet nominees. He said he thinks he can find common ground, especially on transportation infrastructure.
As for the president-elect himself, Hogan has yet to meet him. But he doesn’t think the past lack of support will hurt him. After all, plenty of Republicans didn’t support Trump.
“Most of the people involved in his group right now are people that did not support him, so obviously, that’s not an issue,” Hogan said.
