Yesterday, we broke a story of how gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones posted her support for President Obama immediately after his re-election – a time when many Republicans were angry and in shock. The post occurred on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 first thing in the morning – the day after the election.
What we should have done was roll the clock back less than 24 hours to see what Ms. Jones was posting on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
National Review contributor Eliana Johnson beat us to the punch.
Last night, Johnson broke the story that Christine Jones was actually excited to see President Obama re-elected when she captured this screenshot of Jones’ Facebook page:
Here’s what Johnson also had to say in her National Review Online post:
“Jones is running as an outsider, and she’s probably the most interesting candidate in the race. She calls herself “unapologetically conservative,” and she’s held more than a dozen Second Amendment–themed campaign events at gun stores across the state. But, unlike some of the GOP’s political firebrands, she has at times offered support and praise for President Obama. In a November 2012 Facebook post, she told friends to “get excited” and “find a way to support the new president of the United States of America.”
WOW! This from an “unapologetic conservative” who wants to become governor of Arizona! Who woulda thunk Christine Jones was a closet Obama supporter.
Arizona needs a governor more like this:
Not so much like this:
