    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan will speak in New Hampshire next month as he weighs a primary challenge to President Donald Trump.

    The Republican Hogan, who remains popular in liberal leaning Maryland and won re-election last fall, will speak at "Politics & Eggs" on April 23.

    The program from the New England Council and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College is a political right of passage for many candidates running for president.

    Hogan hasn't publicly decided whether he'll challenge Trump in the primary, though he has not ruled out the possibility.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    It's unclear how a Hogan candidacy would be received by New Hampshire Republicans. An attempt last year to bind the New Hampshire Republican Party to Trump ahead of the 2020 primary faced pushback and was abandoned.
