TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is heading to Ohio to celebrate Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ entry into the NFL Hall of Fame.

Christie is scheduled to be in Canton on Friday and Saturday to see Jones’ induction.

Christie is a lifelong Cowboys fan despite most New Jersey football fans favoring two of the Cowboys‘ biggest rivals: the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.

He has sat with Jones in his box at many Cowboys games. Once, the two had an awkward embrace caught on camera when the Cowboys won a rare playoff game in 2015.

The Republican governor left New Jersey on Friday afternoon as President Donald Trump arrived in the state for the start of a 17-day vacation.
