    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 .

    At halftime Jones informed Christie that if Dallas won he buy Christie all the fried chicken and waffles Christie could eat.

    Sore loser? Lol. You were asked to substantiate a claim. The best you could do was go back 5 years, hardly "winning" an argument. Try harder?

    Not only is there no advantage to calling yourself a "Cowboys fan" in Giants territory, it's a liability (as I posted before). You have to be a die hard fan to admit to it in that state, and when you're governor, it could mean the difference between winning and losing. There's no question that Christie is a lifelong Cowboys fan as he stated. There is no gain to lie about something like that. The only words more offensive in his neck of the woods would be "I'm a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan".

    Still, the southern end of NJ is Eagles territory.

    He was asked to substantiate Chris Christie's words?

    There is no southern end of New Jersey west of the shore. That's what we called 609 territory, or Phillyburbs. They aren't real New Jerseyites.
