According to a report by the prestigious Bloomberg magazine, the owner of the Dallas CowboysJerry Jones, made a donation of $500 thousand dollars to the re-election campaign of Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Jones was one of three prominent business executives to donate $500,000 to Abbott in the last window pre-election fundraiser, which runs from September 30 to October 29, writes Shelly Hagan of Bloomberg.
A survey released Tuesday by the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs found the governor 13 points ahead of O’Rourke in the final days before next week’s election.

Donations to Republicans
It is not the first time that the current owner of the Cowboys has made a donation to members of the Republican Party. In 2020, Jones offered combative words to reporters regarding $1 million charitable contribution he made to former President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee in 2017.
“This is how the country should be run, but don’t fuck with me, okay?” Jones reportedly told a Palm Beach Post report at the 2020 NFL owners meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., when asked about his financial support for Republicans.
