Hogan said that he decided to write in Reagan on his ballot to make a statement and felt that it was justified in his state, where Biden led in a recent poll by about 30 percent, the Post reported.
“I know it’s simply symbolic. It’s not going to change the outcome in my state. But I thought it was important to just cast a vote that showed the kind of person I’d like to see in office,” Hogan told the Post.
“Our party will be in a different place after the election, whomever wins,” Maryland House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga (R) told the Post. “[Hogan] brings that ability to connect with a larger audience, which is something you have to do when you’re a Republican from a Democratic state.”
Hogan told the Post he will continue to be guided by Regan's ability to appeal to both conservatives and Democrats.
“People really want someone who’s pragmatic, who’s not afraid to compromise,” Hogan told the Post.
