“If the former president interferes with the primaries and tries to help nominate unelected people in a general election in, say, swing districts and purple states, it’s going to hurt,” Hogan told Dana. CNN bash on “State of the Union”. add that this is a problem to be resolved.

Trump has not said whether he will stand for re-election in the 2024 presidential campaign, but continues to have an influential grip on the Republican Party. He backed Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin, who distanced himself from the former president in the gubernatorial race and continues to peddle lies about the 2020 election. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Republican and frequent Trump critic, warned on Saturday that the party must move beyond Trump’s fixation on the 2020 election in order to pursue political gains such as Virginia’s.
Youngkin’s key message during his campaign focused on education, while former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe focused much of his campaign message on Trump. Businessman, Youngkin beat McAuliffe in a state that President Joe Biden won in double digits last year. Winsome Sears and Jason Miyares – both Republicans – were elected lieutenant governor and state attorney general. The Republicans also took full control of the Virginia House of Delegates. Republicans had not won an election statewide in the Commonwealth of Nations since 2009, although Virginia has a habit of electing a governor from the party opposite the newly elected president.

Hogan agreed with Christie, telling Bash that the former president is unlikely to leave the political arena and that the party “cannot look back and constantly question” the 2020 election.

“We have to look to ’22 and ’24, and we have to have a message that appeals to more people,” he said. “It’s not about the former president, but there’s no question that Glenn Youngkin did a good job of not alienating that base. But Trump never set foot in the state, which was a good thing for Glenn Youngkin and the country. “
