Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said he would not vote for Donald Trump in the presidential election, and might make a write-in vote instead.

When asked about voting for the likely Republican candidate, Hogan said, "No, I don't plan to," according to The Washington Post.

Hogan has said before that he does not support Trump, but not that he would vote against him. The Republican governor has not yet decided who will get his vote. "I guess when I get behind the curtain I'll have to figure it out. Maybe write someone in. I'm not sure."

Hogan, in 2015, supported the presidential run of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Hogan said he was "disgusted with national politics" after Christie exited the presidential race and endorsed Trump.

He mentioned in the Post report his apparent distaste for both Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

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

The Maryland Democratic Party called on Hogan to denounce Trump on its website, saying "Marylanders deserve a governor who will speak out forcefully against Trump's hate and bigotry."

Before Hogan made the comment, Maryland's Democrats had called on Hogan to give an answer about supporting Trump, according to WCBC radio. Their statement said, "Hogan's unwillingness to take a stand sends a startling message. He's willing to put the future of our country at risk just to put a Republican in the White House."

Hogan had said he would also not be attending the Republican National Convention in July that is likely to be the site in which Trump is named the Republican candidate.

In May, a lobbyist said that Hogan would attend a Maryland crab feast July 20 instead of the Republican National Convention that weekend, according to the Post.
