“We were the most respected country with respect to elections, and now we’re beginning to look like we’re a banana republic,” Mr. Hogan said. “It’s time for them to stop the nonsense. It just gets more bizarre every single day, and, frankly, I’m embarrassed that more people in the party aren’t speaking up.”
Mr. Hogan, who previously had said he wrote-in the late President Ronald Reagan for the 2020 election, said he does not think his fellow Republicans have the “courage” to stand athwart Mr. Trump as he remains in office.
“There have been a few people in Congress — Senator [Mitt] Romney, for example — a few people that are standing up and speaking out pretty strongly,” the governor said. “But there’s an awful lot of them that are not. But history will judge everybody, just as they did during Watergate.”
“This RINO [Republican in name only] will never make the grade,” the president tweeted. “Hogan is just as bad as the flawed tests he paid big money for!”
