NY Governor Cuomo to attend Super Bowl

Created: 01/31/2014 3:52 PM WHEC.com

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be attending this Sunday's Super Bowl.

His announcement comes a day after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he won't be going to the game. New York is an official co-host with New Jersey.

Cuomo was offered a complimentary ticket by the Super Bowl Host Committee but is paying for it with campaign funds. It costs $2,000.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will also attend.

De Blasio is watching the game in New York with his teenage son in part due to the high cost of tickets.

The game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford N.J. between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks is the first held in the region.
