    Here you go. Note the documentation back at least as far as 2010, and the consistent claim of fandom since boyhood.

    Chris Christie Is a Dallas Cowboys Fan, Awkward Side ...

    2 days ago - New Jersey governor Chris Christie is a lifelong Cowboys fan ó which has not won him plaudits in his home state, or elsewhere.

    Christie has acknowledged previously that his athletic allegiances can create political problems. As he told the Newark-based Star-Ledger in 2010:
    Listen, I grew up in the early 1970s and became a huge Roger Staubach fan and a Cowboys fan. . . . Believe me, it doesnít get me anything political around here because the Giants fans hate me, the Eagles fans hate me, it doesnít matter. But you grow up rooting for a team. Thatís just the way it works. . . .
    I always hated Hillary Clinton wearing a Cubs hat or a Yankees hat. Iím a Cowboys fan, Iím a Mets fan, Iím a Rangers fan, Iím a Knicks fan.

    Well good, now we've established he claimed to be a Cowboys fan in 2010. That is still far away from lifelong. Do you have any articles from say the 90s? Maybe pictures of Christie in the 90s with a Cowboys jersey?

    I think the point is made. He's quoted in 2010, before any of this was controversial, saying he had been a Cowboys fan since the 1970's. Moreover, it's a statement against interest. There's no advantage to a New Jersey pol in announcing his Cowboys fandom. The case is made. Thanks for playing.

    So you can't show us any of his lifelong support? Good.

    "I grew up in the early 1970s and became a huge Roger Staubach fan and a Cowboys fan...."

    I'm not sure why you think he's lying.. but ..whatever.

    You should not be a sore loser on such a small question. It only makes you less credible elsewhere, aside from looking ridiculous here.

    "all of the above"
    A shame that choice two makes the most sense.
    Under my campaign and campaign finance reform plan : Zero money allowed in contributions from any source . . A special fund in our Treasury ..only $100K per candidate, plus a little (one hour) of "free" time on all of our networks .
