PA Gov. Tom Wolf Says He's Attending Super Bowl 52 On His Own Dime

Winslow Townson
In this Dec. 6, 2015 file photo, the New England Patriots face the Philadelphia Eagles at the line of scrimmage during an NFL game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The two teams will meet for Super Bowl 52 on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, in Minneapolis.

Pennsylvania's governor plans to travel to Minneapolis this weekend to watch the Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Monday he'll be paying for his own transportation, tickets and lodging to attend the Sunday night game.

The Eagles' most recent Super Bowl appearance was 13 years ago, a 24-21 loss to the Patriots.
