“No, I don’t plan to,” Larry Hogan said, according to The Washington Post.

But Hogan, a first-term governor, didn't say who he would cast his ballot for instead.


“I guess when I get behind the curtain I’ll have to figure it out," he said. "Maybe write someone in. I’m not sure.”

Last year, Hogan endorsed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie before the candidate suspended his bid for the White House. Once Christie dropped out and endorsed Trump, Hogan said he was "disgusted with national politics."

The Maryland governor said he does not plan to attend the Republican National Convention.

Earlier this week, he tried to distance himself from Trump's response to the Orlando shooting. He said he didn't know what the candidate's position was when asked about Trump's recent statements on barring Muslims from entering the country in the wake of the Orlando, Fla. nightclub attack.

"I don't care about Donald Trump. I don't listen to Donald Trump," he said.

Hogan has reportedly tried to deflect questions about the presumptive GOP nominee in the past.

On Wednesday though, he was more direct with his response, saying he is "not pleased with the candidates in either party."

"I don't think either party has put up its best candidate," he said.
