Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan Talks About Surviving Cancer, Baltimore Riots And COVID-19 Pandemic In New Memoir

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) -- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is set to release his new memoir at the end of the month titled, "Still Standing: Surviving Cancer, Riots, a Global Pandemic, and the Toxic Politics that Divide America."

In a New York Times interview, Hogan also discusses his plans to possibly make a bid for the White House in 2024.

The Republican governor, who leads the National Governors Association, previously toyed with the idea of running against President Donald Trump in the 2020 primary. He's expected to go on a book tour once the book is released.

In the book, Hogan discusses surviving cancer, a global pandemic and the Baltimore riots following the 2015 death of Freddie Gray in police custody.

"After this November election is over, regardless of who wins, there are a large majority of Americans who are completely convinced our political system is fundamentally broken, and they're going to be looking for something different," Hogan told the Times.

The money from the book sales will go to Hogan's political advocacy organization "An America United."

In a statement, the group's political director David Weinman said, "Governor Hogan remains fully focused on (his) job as Governor of Maryland.  It's way too early to be discussing 2024."
