  • Hogan, considered at possible 2024 presidential candidate, heaped the blame on Trump during a CNN interview Sunday.
  • “This should have been a huge red wave,” Hogan lamented. “It should have been one of the biggest red waves we’ve ever had. President Biden’s approval rating was so low, one of the lowest historically. More than 70% of the people thought the country was going in the wrong direction, and yet we still didn’t perform.”
  • Trump is being criticized for the GOP underperforming in the midterms, with critics saying he backed unelectable, fringe candidates.
  • But people who tried to re-litigate the 2020 election and focused on conspiracy theories and talked about things the voters didn’t care about, they were almost universally rejected” Hogan continued Sunday. “I think it’s basically the third election in a row that Donald Trump has cost us the race. Three strikes, you’re out.”
