TRENTON, N.J. (The Blaze/AP) -- Yesterday, we reported on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's private use of a police helicopter and limo.

Now, a spokeswoman for the governor says the governor and State Republican Committee are reimbursing the state for all personal use of a state police helicopter, which includes two trips to watch his oldest son's baseball games.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella says Christie has paid $2,251 to the state to cover the cost of all trips.

Comella also says the state GOP has paid $919 to cover the cost of Christie's trip Tuesday when used the helicopter to fly 75 miles from a game in Montvale to Princeton to take meeting with a group of top GOP campaign contributors from Iowa.

On Wednesday, a spokesman for the first-term GOP governor said he wouldn't reimburse the state.
