Former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has decided not to run for president in 2024, writing in a New York Times op-ed that one main reason he's sitting this one out is he doesn't want to help get former President Donald Trump re-elected.

Hogan, who spent eight years as the governor of Maryland, said he not only wants to protect his family from "another grueling campaign," but he also cares more about "ensuring a future for the Republican Party than securing my own future in the Republican Party." He's "optimistic" about the GOP, but "deeply concerned about this next election. We cannot afford to have Mr. Trump as our nominee and suffer defeat for the fourth consecutive election cycle."
