Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Monday said fellow Republicans who continue to deny the reality of President Donald Trumps election loss are an embarrassment to their party.
Speaking to CNNs Jake Tapper after President-elect Joe Biden officially secured the electoral votes required to become president, Hogan admonished party members, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), for their ongoing refusal to accept the results. 
Its just getting ridiculous at this point, Hogan said. This election is over. The president had every opportunity to provide some kind of evidence of widespread voter fraud. We havent seen any.
All the court cases are done the Supreme Court refused to hear the case because there wasnt any factual evidence and now, the states all across America, the Electoral College has voted.
The election truly is over, and we need to move forward together as a nation. Watch my full interview with @CNN: pic.twitter.com/qnSrOBrMiI

Biden crossed the Electoral Colleges 270-vote threshold Monday, solidifying his win in the Nov. 3 election. He received 306 electoral votes to Trumps 232.
Hogan, a frequent critic of Trump, was one of the first Republican officials to acknowledge Bidens win. He said last month that his fellow Republicans were afraid to criticize the president for fear of retribution.
I understand at the beginning maybe some people had some concerns about some of the allegations, but now we are several steps down the road, Hogan said Monday. Theyre out of runway. We just have to acknowledge: This is embarrassing us. Its an affront to our democratic process, and its diminishing the presidency.
Its bad for our party, bad for the country and it weakens our position in the world.
Trump still refuses to concede the Nov. 3 election and has not backed down from his baseless accusations about a massive conspiracy to rig the voting against him. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many elected Republican officials have fallen into lockstep. A number have encouraged and amplified Trumps lies, while others have stayed silent or refused to say who won.
