    Gov. Larry Hogan, the Republican governor of Maryland, will not back Donald Trump for president, he said Wednesday.

    Asked if he would support the party's presumptive nominee, he shook his head.

    "I'm not a supporter of Donald Trump, I'm not going to endorse Donald Trump, and I'm not going to get involved in the campaign," he said.

    Hogan supported New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's candidacy for president. When Christie suspended his campaign and threw his support behind Trump, speculation arose that Trump might consider Christie as his vice presidential running mate.

    Would Hogan support Trump and Christie as a package deal?

    No, he said.

    Speaking after a visit to Prince George's Community College, Hogan also said he would skip the Republican National Convention, set to be held in Cleveland in July.
