Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he believes it would be a mistake for his party to "ram through" a nomination to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court before the November election.

The Republican who has said he will consider running for president in 2024 made the comments Wednesday in an interview at The Texas Tribune Festival.

Hogan also says he believes it would be a mistake for Democrats to question the integrity of the court or to try to pack the court.

The two-term Republican in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1 has often criticized partisan gridlock in Washington.

Hogan says the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shouldn’t be allowed to “create more division in our country.”

President Donald Trump says he expects to announce his pick for the Supreme Court on Friday or Saturday.
