Governor’s Office: Jerry Paid for Christie Trip to Playoff Game
New Jersey taxpayers can breathe a sigh of relief.
According to NJ.com, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is responsible for bring New Jersey governor Chris Christie to Dallas to root on his Cowboys.
NJ.com spoke with the governor's office today after Christie took on more criticism for appearing at another Cowboys game.
“Governor Christie attended the game last night as a guest of Jerry Jones, who provided both the ticket and transportation at no expense to New Jersey taxpayers,” Christie spokesman Kevin Roberts told the website.
Jones paid for a private jet trip and transportation to the stadium last night in order for Christie and his family to attend the game.
Christie, once again, received a negative reaction and criticism from his constituents when video and images surfaced on the broadcast last night of him celebrating a Cowboys victory in Jones' box.
NJ.com also mentions that Jones did not pay for a trip to Dallas on December 21, Christie and his family were vacationing in Texas prior to that game.
No word yet if Christie plans to attend the divisional round in Green Bay.
