    Maine's outspoken Republican governor is endorsing brash New York billionaire Donald Trump for president.

    Gov. Paul LePage announced his endorsement Friday while speaking on "The Howie Carr Show," a conservative radio talk show based in Boston. He called in from Florida, where he's on vacation. He says Trump "wants to make America great again" and adds Trump "is the only one doing that right now."

    LePage says he hasn't spoken with Trump. He was a supporter of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie before he ended his presidential bid. Christie also endorsed Trump on Friday.

    LePage and Trump are known for speaking their minds. LePage repeated his assertion he, not Trump, is the original bombastic politician. LePage jokes he "was Donald Trump before Donald Trump became popular."
