Donald Trump has just picked up a second endorsement from a sitting Republican governor, Maine's Paul LePage, according to Bangor Daily News political correspondent Michael Shepherd:

LePage had earlier endorsed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who endorsed Trump earlier on Friday.

LePage also governs a Northeastern state where Trump is relatively popular, and has a history of saying frankly Trump-esque things — like the time he said "guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty" would come up to Maine to sell drugs and "half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue that we got to deal with down the road."
