Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan told CBS News that he still isn't ruling out a Republican primary challenge against President Trump in 2020, saying Trump "does things in a way that aren't great for the Republican Party, or for the country."

What he's saying: "I was just sworn in a month ago for my second term," said the popular centrist governor, who has publicly shunned Trump. Hogan has planned a March trip to Iowa as vice chair of the National Governors Association. "I've got a lot of work to do here in Maryland. … I would say I'm being approached from a lot of different people and I guess the best way to put it is, I haven't thrown them out of my office."
