Governor Larry Hogan is still hinting at a run for the White House in 2020.

The governor said he doesn't believe the president to be vulnerable in a primary, but he's still considering challenging him in 2020 because things could change. That’s why Hogan said, “Never say never.”

Hogan made these comments while attending a National Governors Association meeting in Iowa.

During an interview in Iowa, Hogan said, “If there's a crack in Trump's support, if there's a little bit of any daylight someone might say, look there's very long odds but it's an important thing to try to do.”

While President Trump remains popular among Republican voters, Hogan remains to be a popular Republican governor in a heavily Democratic state. He’s the first Republican governor to win a second term in Maryland in more than 60 years.

So far, only one other republican, former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld has announced challenging President Trump for the White House.

The governor hopes his popularity translates to the presidency.
