The Dallas Cowboys' newest good luck charm has been attending games on the owner's dime.

A spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie says the governor attended Sunday's football game between his beloved Cowboys and the Detroit Lions as a guest of owner Jerry Jones.

The spokesman said Jones provided transportation as well as the ticket at no expense to state taxpayers.

He cited the state's code of conduct, which says the governor may accept gifts from relatives or personal friends that are paid for with personal funds.

It was Christie's third game on Jones' dime.

Christie is weighing a run for president. Jones has contributed to Republican candidates in the past.

NJ.com first reported the arrangement.
