Worst Part of Christine Jones' Campaign for Governor So Far?

One-third of Christine Jones.


It's not even the election year yet, but the campaign of former Go Daddy lawyer and GOP candidate for governor Christine Jones is not going well.

Yesterday, our colleague Ray Stern reported Jones' 2004 DUI conviction, although history (Governor Glug-Glug) shows that's not the end of the world.

-Jones Is Pro-Joe Arpaio, but Seems Clueless About What the Sheriff Does

Really, the only thing going for Jones right now is the fact that she's not disbarred and disgraced former Maricopa County Attorney "Candy Andy" Thomas, whose run for governor is horrible just by existing.

But, in addition to the DUI, there was also Jones sucking-up to Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Not only was she sucking up to him, but she also claimed Arpaio put out water for immigrants crossing the Rio Grande. (No he doesn't and the Rio Grande, last time we checked, doesn't even come close to dripping into Arizona, let alone Maricopa County.)

There's also Jones' claim that she doesn't like those racy Go Daddy ads -- like the one she starred in (she wasn't the, um, talent, at least).

Whoops.

So, what's the worst part of Jones' campaign so far, with more than one year left before election day?

What's sad is that the clueless GOP voters will still vote for her. I think having a DUI or violations is a prerequisite in their party of lunatics.

She reminds me of the rich gal who owns a wrestling media empire thought she could buy and charm her way into a elected office!:-) 0r the witch on the east coast who thought no one would not vote for her if she merely got on television enough!

The worst part is not listed in the poll. The worst is that she admitted that she had no clue that Arpaio and the MCSO was found guilty of racial profiling. Sheesh, try reading a newspaper, or better yet, Judge Snow's court order. Another empty suit like Sarah Palin.

I would have to say the worst part of her campaign would be the simple fact that she's a Republican.

Unsafe streets , extreme poverty , mass shootings , bombings , children molested , schools drained , but hey .....congress is rich , gays are prioritized ,and corporations are protected and find ways around paying taxes. Good job America lots to be proud of. currently we have blind leaders supported by a nation of masterdebaters. The government is acting like a sixteen year old kid that thinks it knows everything. "If there isn't justice for the people let there be no peace for the government." Doing the same thing over and over is insane. Fix America First. Prioritize. Recycle America ,turn things around. The Government should fear the people, opposite of how it is now. the government should protect people and regulate corporations not protect corporations and regulate people. We need to Build a good foundation then rebuild. Reinstate common sense. Create Accountability and most of all treat our cancers greed , ignorance and self-entitlement. Our society runs the way it does because it is designed that way for the rich by the rich. There are many common sense simple ways to change things to make a better world to live in. Until we can prioritize correctly , have accountability , and worry about the American instead of the American dollar things will remain perverted. Anyone can find fault -- it's not a sign of anything other than moderate brain activity. It's much harder to offer creative criticism that actually improves the situation for everyone involved, UNITED we stand divided we fall...there is only one race the HUMAN RACE all the divisions of political parties and skin color have demoralized this country into a sewage plant of lying stealing ignorant greedy self-entitled hypocritical idiots the government has had too much money power and time with too little results actions speak louder than words. Being successful doesn’t necessarily make you great. What makes you great is when you reach back and help somebody else become great. unfortunately no one cares. no one with power anyway. enlightenment finally after watching Swipe yo EBT (It's Free) on you tube everything fell into place. now that the middle class has been eradicated the united states are truly united once again now we are left with the rich and the poor that equally agree on greed ignorance and self-entitlement. both parties the rich and the poor demand something for nothing are good for nothing have no morals and only care about themselves. actions speak louder than words. If Being smart enough to do the job replaced being rich enough or politically correct enough then we would have a chance. as long as playing the blame game masterdebating and spending other peoples money is all our government is capable of ( actions speak louder than words ) then the next civil war the 99% vs. 1% and it will be ugly.

Is this bimbo a Sarah Palin redux? There's a strong resemblance. And as it is with Sister Sarah, an English teacher would have a hell of a time diagramming her sentences.

She'll get voted in, Arizona has a tendency to put women of this nature in office. Why do you think she did it?

She's a woman GOP and they are usually the worst. She reminds me of another Sarah Palin.

Seems to me that you used to have to be intelligent to make it through law school.


What happened?

The fact that she's filthy rich -- and that isn't likely to change.

If you think Brewer is bad and you dion't like her policies, wait until you see what's next for Arizona if Jones is elected.  You're really not going to like it.  If Brewer is defeated it will be by her.  She would make a great next Governor.

Three election cycles ago candidates were clamoring for support from the elderly elected official of MCSO. Two cycles ago the number of those wanting his endorsement dwindled as they realized the old man is politically cancerous. The last election cycle he couldn't give his endorsements away, much less sell them, as he has in the past.

The last thing we in Arizona need is yet another governor who aligns herself/himself with the mentally ill geriatric goon who calls himself the local sheriff in Maricopa County. ONE of fifteen counties in the state.

Ms. Jones may want to align herself with some of the other sheriffs in the state. I wonder if she knows there are any others?
