Former GoDaddy General Counsel Christine Jones announced that she was running for Congress earlier today.
Jones sent out an email to her supporters earlier today making the announcement as well as publishing her first campaign video:
Jones will be seeking the Republican nomination for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.
Here’s the email that she sent out earlier today:
Today, I officially announced my candidacy for the Republican nomination in Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.
As a conservative business leader, I believe we have enough career politicians in Washington. We need citizen representatives with business and real world experiences if we are going to fix the multitude of problems facing America today – runaway spending in Washington, a failed immigration policy, and threats from ISIS on the battlefield and in cyberspace.
The voters are tired of politicians who make big promises and fail to deliver. That needs to change.
Unlike career politicians, I don’t just talk about what needs to be done…I do it.
As Executive Vice President of Go Daddy for more than 10 years, I played an essential role in the creation of over 4,000 jobs, including more than 1,500 in the East Valley. I bring successful private sector business, technology, and policy-development experience to the table.
Today, my campaign released this video:
See you on the campaign trail.
Her official campaign site? Her updated site. Unlike a lot of political hopefuls Jones has her own domain and won’t have to deal with the embarrassment others have had to deal with. She’s also using her experience with GoDaddy as a selling point for her political campaign.
Ms Jones had previously run for governor of Arizona.
