New Jersey Governor Declares Taylor “Swift” Ham, Egg, and Cheese as Official State Sandwich appeared first on Consequence.
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has (wrongly) taken sides in the Taylor ham versus pork roll debate. As the latest government official to roll out the red carpet for Taylor Swift, he named the official state sandwich after the pop star. The proclamation comes ahead of Swift’s “The Eras Tour” (get tickets here) arriving at MetLife Stadium over Memorial Day weekend.
“In New Jersey, we have a reputation for a big war between the Taylor ham and the pork roll,” Murphy said in a video posted to Twitter. “Usually we’ll let you call it whatever you want, but since we’ve got a superstar coming to town, we know that all too well, we should commemorate the occasion. So today we’re declaring the official sandwich of New Jersey State a Taylor Swift ham, egg and cheese.
He continued, “Welcome to New Jersey, Taylor! We were expecting you, and without you, the summer would have been cruel.
Earlier in the tour, Glendale, Arizona temporarily adopted the name Swift City before the entertainer was named honorary mayor of Tampa.
Swift will perform at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey from May 26-28 as part of her “Eras Tour,” during which she performed different surprise songs at each show. Grab last-minute tickets for his remaining dates here.
