    Gov. Larry Hogan says his administration has had preliminary discussions with Amazon, and he looks forward to meeting with the company again about potentially expanding to Maryland.

    Hogan was asked at a news conference Thursday about the company's new headquarters, after Amazon announced it has abandoned plans for a big new headquarters in New York that would have brought 25,000 jobs to the city.

    Maryland's Montgomery County was one of the company's finalists for the new headquarters.
