Hogan to Celebrate Cancer-Free Status With Christie This Weekend

Gov. Larry Hogan will reportedly take a moment to celebrate being cancer-free with a “ceremonial cutting of lime green wristbands” with political bestie New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in New Hampshire this weekend.

NBC News dubbed them a “(wrist)band of brothers.” The public friendship began when Christie trekked to Maryland several times to stump for Hogan during his seemed-like-a-long-shot-at-the-time gubernatorial campaign in 2014. Hogan eventually returned the favor with an endorsement of Christie for Republican presidential nominee. After Hogan announced that he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Christie, along with his wife Mary Pat, donned a green “Hogan Strong” wristband in solidarity.

The two are headed to New Hampshire this weekend to drum up support for Christie’s trailing presidential campaign in advance of the state’s first-in-the-nation primary. And they will take the opportunity to celebrate Hogan’s long-shot victory over cancer by cutting their wristbands. A Christie adviser told NBC News the ceremony “will hopefully be a good moment between good friends.”
