Christie picks up 2016 endorsement from MD gov.

Chris Christie has picked up the presidential endorsement of Maryland's governor.



Republican Larry Hogan says Christie tells it like it is and most politicians don't - and that the New Jersey governor can work with Democrats and independents.



Hogan made the endorsement Wednesday during a stop at a diner near the Maryland Capitol in Annapolis.



It's a bit of political payback.



Christie was a strong supporter of Hogan's underdog campaign for governor last year in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1.



Christie led the Republican Governors Association and made several campaign appearances in Maryland for Hogan. The association spent $1.2 million in the final weeks of the campaign on Hogan's behalf.



Christie has been wearing a "Hogan Strong" bracelet since the Maryland governor's cancer diagnosis was announced last month.
