Christie attends Hall of Fame ceremony for Cowboys owner

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was among the guests at the NFL Hall of Fame ceremony for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones Saturday.

Christie flew out to Canton, Ohio, Friday for Jones’s induction ceremony into the hall, according to the Associated Press. He was spotted in the background of a photo from the ceremony posted by the official Cowboys Twitter account.



Christie, who is facing record-low approval numbers in his home state, is a lifelong Cowboys fan despite his East Coast roots.

Jones paid for the former Republican presidential candidate to fly out to a Cowboys game in 2015, where the two shared an awkward hug in the owner’s booth that quickly went viral.
