Republican Larry Hogan is exploring a run for governor in Maryland. Hogan says he would back former Governor Robert Ehrlich if he decides to run, but Hogan says he's considering a run himself if Ehrlich opts out.

The Republican says he plans to launch a ''Hogan for Maryland'' committee to begin gauging support. Hogan served as Maryland's secretary of appointments in Ehrlich's cabinet. He also ran against Representative Steny Hoyer in 1992. He picked up about 44 percent of the vote in that race.

Baltimore County Delegate Patrick McDonough and attorney Mike Pappas also are running for the GOP nomination.
