Christine Jones: AZ Gov candidate’s questionable judgment


If you were one of the multitude who received this head-scratcher of a Christmas card from 2014 gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones, you’d not only have to wonder about her choice in selecting a campaign advisor, but also her own shaky judgment.

Jones has had her share of problems, missteps and foolish utterances, but sending out a card with the words “Glory to God in the Highest,” topping a photo of her and her husband Gary standing in the foreground of the tony Arizona Biltmore Resort, a luxury Waldorf Astoria propertyoutranks them all.

Intertwining biblical quotes and praise to the Lord with an image epitomizing worldly grandeur to mark the day commemorating Jesus’ birth gives the impression her idea of appropriateness is more than a bit skewed.

Her judgment has been impaired more than a few times, as we’ve previously noted. Serious driving infractions include multiple DUI convictions  TPM reports that records show she was first pulled over in 2004.  Jones was ticketed on red-light-running charges in 2008 and 2009.  She was also twice convicted of DUI in 2006. She calls those incidents that landed her an overnight bunk in jail and cost her in fines — which she slickly conceals as “dues” — “regrettable mistakes.”

A key high dollar bundler for John McCain, the conservative poser generously donated to the campaigns of Democrats and RINOs. Now the former Go Daddy honcho, who has never evidenced any interest in the Republican Party in any meaningful way, arrogantly wants the state’s top job.

Would you hire her?

    Besides repeatedly demonstrating incredibly poor judgment, Christine Jones is an elitist, incapable of relating to “the folks.” She and her husband live in a luxury condo, abutting the golf course on the Biltmore property, so it would be outside her thought process to exclude her “realm.”

      We can only hope, Doc. She has personal wealth and the ability to fund raise. What I find interesting is her complete lack of involvement at the grassroots level of the Republican party she claims to care so much about. Has she ever even thought enough of it to connect on a local level to run for precinct committeeman? I’d never seen her before until she did her offensive self promotion skit at the state meeting last year.

      • Doc says:

        I know what you mean! The 1st time I ever heard of her was HERE! In typical mcStain fashon, we’re wwaaaayyyy beneath her.

    Christine might look to the communication team of Pope Francis and hire a more down to earth political adviser. That person could help her relate to the base of the Republican Party rather than the elites she is obviously targeting. Christine does not need money from the elites; she already has enough of her own to fund her campaign. She needs votes from the base. Who is she paying as a political consultant? That person needs a cut in pay..

    Her Christmas card and her posts on facebook take on quite the angelic “look”…quite bizarre for her.

  5. Susan says:

    The Christmas cards had to be an expensive endeavor as well as the other mailings I receive that make her look like a saint.

  6. MacBeth says:

    You might remember in 2010 Buz Mills tried to buy the governorship also. Even with the help of former Gov. Fife Symington’s consultant, he was failing miserably, saw the handwriting on the wall and “suspended” his campaign……political speak for “dropped out.”

    I note in the donation file that Seeing Red refers us to that Jones gave $5,000 to the AZ State Republican Party on Jan 13, 2013. Wonder if that donation had anything to do with her bizarre guest speaker spot at the State Convention that was held later that month? Most attendees were wondering then “who the heck is this and why was she given a prime speaking slot?”.

    I think the $5,000 donation answers that question. Money talks.

      PROOF that AZGOP is in th’ toilet…sad…but TRUE…

    • Susan says:

      Sickening for AZ GOP

    • Ellsworth says:

      The full line, as you must know, is “Money talks and B.S. walks.” If that has any true meaning, Christine Jones should be walking out the door in utter embarrassment. The only problem is, the BS didn’t keep McCain and Jeff the Flake from continuing their con of the Arizona Republican sheeple.

    • Sally Forth says:

      Yes. I was also there. It was enough of a turnoff that there was a fair exodus to the lobby as Christine Jones continued to idolize herself. I wondered why she was given the platform, but it never occurred to me at the time that this self promotion was to pave the way for a campaign for governor! (Heaven forbid she start a rung or two lower on the political ladder!) I later found out that she had contributed to the state party so then Arizona GOP chair Tom Morrissey allowed her to BUY the microphone. Silly me. It takes a while to get up to speed when I blindly trust without verifying, as President Reagan wisely reminded us to do.

  8. Night Owl says:

    To the question “Would you hire her?” My answer is not only NO!, but HELL NO!!

  9. Chad Palmer says:

    In God We Trust, it is no secret that we our One Nation Under God and putting it on a Christmas card is no crime either, however by their fruits ye shall know them says it all.

    • Tomfoolery says:

      Looks like you missed the point of Jones’ poor choice in attempting to meld her obvious delight in splendor and opulence with a Godly Christmas message.
