"I think it was a mistake," Hogan said on CNN's "State of the Union." "Liz Cheney is a solid conservative Republican who voted with the president 93 percent of the time. I thought she just stood up and told the truth and said exactly what she thought.

The worst of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be over in the United States.
