Jerry Jones: Chris Christie is 'part of our mojo'
Jones said on 105.3 The Fan he wants Christie to join him in Green Bay for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Packers. Jones paid for Christie's plane ride and hosted him in a luxury suite for the 24-20 win over the Lions.
"He’s a Cowboy fan through and through,” Jones said. “I met him through the Cowboys, and I’m excited about it. He’s part of our mojo. I want him there all the way."
With the Giants, Jets and Eagles boasting strong fan bases in New Jersey, some critics have panned Christie's ardent support of the Cowboys.
Christie also is under scrutiny because one of Jones' firms has a business relationship with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which Christie jointly controls with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Legends Hospitality, partly owned by the Cowboys, won the contract to operate an observatory at One World Trade Center.
The Port Authority operates the site. A spokewoman told the Wall Street Journal that Legends was chosen following competitive bidding in 2013.
