“Mandate For Moderation:” Governor Hogan Appears on CNN’s State of the Union

Governor Hogan appeared on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper to discuss the path forward following the 2020 election.

As Governor Hogan wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed yesterday, President-elect Biden’s victory can only be interpreted as a “mandate for moderation…not radical change.”

“Pushing a far-left agenda would bitterly divide the country. It may be what the loudest voices in Mr. Biden’s party are demanding, but he wasn’t elected to divide and disrupt. He won the election because America is fed up with bitter partisanship, divisiveness and dysfunction.

Look at the results down the ballot. Despite suffering the first loss for an incumbent president since 1992, Republicans added a governorship in Montana, appear to have held the Senate majority, and even gained seats in the House. Americans wouldn’t vote for divided government if they wanted radical change.

We have a choice. We can either continue to perpetuate toxic politics, or we can work together to build a better future. We can either try to score points on social media, or we can come together to solve problems and make life better for all Americans. We can either move forward together, or we can continue to slide backward, divided. Now is the time to govern.”
