Larry Hogan Launching 2024 Presidential Bid via Think Tanks?

While Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has not officially announced his intention to run for president in 2024, there is much speculation that he plans to do so.

He will soon go on a virtual book tour, and he is using think tanks for the release of that book.  Here is more from the New York Times:
Mr. Hogan also plans to appear at events with the American Enterprise Institute, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute, the Institute of Politics at Harvard University, and the Hoover Institute, among others.

Moreover, on July 21, Hogan will be joining Dr. Scott Gottlieb to discuss Maryland's COVID-19 response for an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event.

Last year, it was reported that Jerry Taylor, President of the Niskanen Center, was trying to persuade Hogan to run against President Trump in 2020.

In 2016, the Maryland Public Policy Institute, a state-level free-market think tank, honored Hogan with an award.
