Jerry Jones says Gov. Chris Christie is no bandwagon Cowboys fan -- he's been a supporter for 50 years and has become "part of [the team's] mojo."
Of course, Christie has been taking some serious heat ever since he was seen bear hugging the NFL owner in the owner's box at Cowboys Stadium this past weekend ... as the team defeated the Lions.
"Listen, he's a Cowboy through-and-through ... he's part of our mojo," Jones said during an interview on 105.3 THE FAN Dallas/Ft. Worth.
Jerry says if Christie's "mojo" can help the team go all the way to the Super Bowl ... "he outta be looked at as the President of the United States."
Jones takes it a step further ... and says Christie might be the most "deep-seated" Cowboys fan he's ever had in the owner's box -- and says he hopes CC joins the team in Green Bay this weekend.
So far, Christie hasn't said if he'll be there.
