ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was on-hand as Maryland’s new Republican governor was sworn into office.
Christie introduced Larry Hogan on Wednesday before Hogan delivered his inaugural address outside the statehouse in Annapolis.
Christie said Hogan will work to help people keep more of the money they earn. Christie also said he likes Hogan because he’s blunt and direct but also able to bring people together.
The appearance marked the last stop of Christie’s victory tour celebrating candidates he helped elect in his former role as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
Hogan was one of the most unexpected winners.
The potential 2016 presidential candidate also introduced himself to Washington lawmakers earlier in the day at a meet-and-greet with House Republicans on Capitol Hill.
