Andy Biggs Takes Aim at Don Stapley, Christine Jones Shows Biggs, Stapley as Career Pols

Saturday, East Valley voters in CD-5 were treated to another attack mailer by the Andy Biggs campaign. This time, the target was former Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley.

In the mailer, Biggs lands three hits on Stapley.

First, Biggs shows that Stapley supported liberal Democrat Mary Rose Wilcox with a $1,000 donation. Wilcox was outspoken in her support for Obamacare, The DREAM Act and expanding restrictions on gun owners.

Second, Biggs claimed Stapley opposed conservative. He cites an article by Mike Sunnucks in which Supervisor Stapley voted and missed votes denying money to Sheriff Joe Arpaio to fight illegal immigration.

The final blow comes when Biggs’ campaign revisits the multiple corruption charges against Stapley. They cite an Arizona Republic article in which Stapley used more than $80,000 in campaign funds for personal use including a lavish vacation to Hawaii, furniture and hair plugs. One other reference includes an Arizona Republic article in which Stapley was indicted on 118 counts of fraud and theft.

Here’s a copy of the hit piece:

Surprisingly, the Biggs campaign did not use the mugshot photo of Don Stapley on its mailer.

Just as Biggs’ mailer hits households across the district, the Jones for Congress campaign puts out another political ad drawing attention to both Biggs and Stapley’s troubling records as career politicians.

In her ad, “Out of Touch,” Christine Jones calls out Andy Biggs and Don Stapley as career politicians who have lost touch with the people they are supposed to serve.

The ad show Stapley as too liberal on the issue of immigration and a supporter of amnesty for illegal aliens. Jones also reminds viewers that Stapley was arrested for using campaign money for personal vacations and luxury gifts.

The Jones campaign then turns its attention to Andy Biggs revealing that Biggs is on official government record for taking lobbyist gifts. But most disturbingly, Biggs single-handedly blocked a law to protect children from sexual predators, putting pimps and johns ahead of child protection. A March 30, 2007 Arizona Republic column is cited in the ad.

Here is the Jones for Congress political ad:

Primary Election day is just over a week away as candidates scramble for every vote. Recent polls show the race is very close.

If you’re like us, you will probably be voting for the non-career politicians this year. Washington has enough politicians who have messed up our political system. Rewarding local politicians with a vote to Washington won’t improve our lives. This election, send a conservative business leader to fix the problem. On Election Day, vote for Christine Jones for Congress.

 

Christine Jones Release New Campaign Ad, ‘Gaggle’

(Gilbert, AZ) – Today, the Jones for Congress campaign released its latest commercial, “Gaggle,” in the Republican Primary race for CD-5.

The ad features a gaggle of career politicians competing for attention contrasted against successful conservative business leader, Christine Jones. In the ad, Jones asks the gaggle if they have created any jobs or balanced any budgets. They haven’t. She also discloses she hasn’t taken any special interest money. The career politicians clamor that they have. The ad is an accurate portrayal of the CD-5 race.

Jordan Ray, manager for the campaign remarked, “This ad hits the nail on the head when comparing Christine Jones to the current gaggle of career politicians in this race.” Ray continued, “Christine is a true-life success story. She’s helped create thousands of jobs, balanced budgets and helped grow a major technology company. She’s exactly who our congressional district needs.”

Governor Mike Huckabee Endorses Christine Jones for East Valley Congressional Seat

Conservative business leader Christine Jones landed a significant endorsement Tuesday evening when the campaign released a video of Governor Mike Huckabee endorsing her campaign for Congress.

The former Arkansas Governor and Republican Presidential candidate produced a personal video message from his office that he made public through the Jones campaign Facebook page on Tuesday evening.

In his message, Governor Huckabee speaks glowingly of his friend Jones and advises voters to beware of Washington elitists who are afraid of Jones because she can’t be bought. “She’s my friend. She’s someone I know, someone I trust and someone I believe that when you send her to Washington, you’ll know, you have someone who’s fighting for you, not someone fighting just to keep the special interest and the status quo alive and well,” Huckabee remarks.

Christine Jones welcomed the endorsement stating, “I am truly honored and humbled to have the support and endorsement of my friend Governor Huckabee. He understands why DC insiders and special interests try to keep out conservative problem solvers like me: I want to fix Washington’s problems, they want to maintain the status quo.”

According to recent polls, Jones is leading in the GOP primary against her three opponents. Voters are currently casting early ballots as Primary Election day approaches on August 30th.

Washington Insiders Engage in False Advertising Against Christine Jones

You may have seen or heard political ads attacking Christine Jones over comments she made regarding Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. A Washington insider group cherry-picked comments from her social media, intentionally took them out of context and twisted them into a hit and run political commercial.

This group is now spending hundreds of thousands of dark dollars in false advertising to attack Jones under the mantra of guilt by association. This political insider group wants the average viewer to believe that Christine Jones is a Democrat-sympathizer whose loyalty to the Republican Party is in doubt.

Nothing could be further from the truth. These political ads are false.

Voters in Congressional District 5 should know that Christine Jones is a lifelong Republican who oftentimes tells voters that she went out of her way to visit the DMV on her 18th birthday to register as a Republican. She’s been loyal and dedicated to the GOP for nearly three decades.

For those who do their homework on Christine Jones, they’ll note that she committed to support the nominee of the Republican Party months ago. They’ll also note that as recent as two weeks ago, she blasted Hillary Clinton on multiple charges including, the email scandal, the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Speeches and Hillary’s failure and cover-up of the Benghazi murders.

If you really want to check Christine Jones’ commitment to defeating Barack Obama, all you need to do is check the Federal Election Commission records. You’ll see that she donated $55,000 of her personal money to the 2012 Mitt Romney Victory Fund. That’s what’s referred to as “putting your money where your mouth is.”

How much did Christine Jones’ opponents donate to the Mitt Romney Victory Fund in 2012? According to FEC reports, zero dollars. That’s Z-E-R-O.

The truth is that Washington insiders are seeking to hand-pick a career politician to succeed outgoing Congressman Matt Salmon. They’re spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to smear a lifelong, loyal conservative Republican who has a proven record of fiscal accountability and effectiveness.

This election, don’t fall for the dark money false advertising by the Washington elite. If all they’ve got is a few tweets taken out of context, they’ve got nothing.

A 30-year commitment to conservative principles means something and shouldn’t have to compete against a 30-second distortion. Christine Jones is a true conservative Republican who won’t be bullied by political insiders and will fight for you in Congress.

Christine Jones, Pro-Life Candidate For Congress

Recently, it came to my attention that two Gilbert pro-life activists supporting Andy Biggs are circulating an email attacking the sanctity of life position of my friend, Christine Jones. I understand that. It’s election time and being a little over zealous comes with the territory.

For those who vote for a candidate based on a single-issue, each of the Republican congressional candidates running in CD-5 have identified as pro-life.

As the former Executive Director of Arizona Right to Life and someone who has been a part of the Arizona landscape of the pro-life movement for over two decades, I am supporting Christine Jones and have joined her team for Congress. I only support and work for pro-life candidates and that’s a deal-breaker for me.

I also believe strongly that if the pro-life movement is going to win – especially in the public relations matrix – we need to elect more pro-life women to office. I’m not alone. Organizations such as Susan B. Anthony List focus on electing pro-life women to office around the country.

Other pro-life activists, culture warriors and faith leaders also support Christine Jones. In fact, Monday, she announced the endorsement of three well-known pastors who shepherd huge churches in the East Valley. These leaders in the faith know Christine well and know she can be trusted with issues as fundamental as the sanctity of life.

As you cast your vote for Congress, remember no other right is as sacred as the first and foremost right to life. Christine Jones will defend and protect that right for the unborn and their mothers because she is pro-life.

East Valley Faith Leaders Endorse Christine Jones

Christine Jones for Congress

(Gilbert, AZ) – Today, East Valley Pastors Tom Shrader, Gary Kinnaman, and Kevin Hartke all endorsed Christine Jones in her bid for Congress. Jones, a technology and business leader, has attended church in Chandler for nearly 20 years and has been an active and supporting member of the faith community in Arizona.

Tom Shrader, founding pastor at Redemption Church, said of his endorsement, “Christine is a proven, innovative business leader. Now she is ready to bring that visionary approach to public service. She will be a breath of fresh air in the stale world of Washington politics.”

Reverend Dr. Gary D. Kinnaman, former Senior Pastor at Word of Grace Church in Mesa, and now Pastor-at-large around the community, stated, “I’m pleased to support my friend Christine Jones for Congress. She is highly competent, unwaveringly honorable, and cares deeply about our state and its people. Ms. Jones has a wide range of experience in business, law, and non-profit leadership. She is active in her local church, too. Can you possibly ask for more in a candidate?”

Kevin Hartke, Senior Pastor at Trinity Christian Fellowship, said of his support for Jones, “Christine Jones has deep ties to our community and she understands our needs and frustrations. I know she will represent the district, the East Valley and Arizona well. I’m endorsing Christine because she brings a set of fresh eyes to problems that are not being solved or resolved.”

Jones, commenting on the endorsements said, “I am humbled to be supported by these great men. I admire each of them and their contributions to the East Valley. They have given their hearts and talents as forces for faith and goodness in our community. With their support, I hope to continue to build momentum throughout the coming weeks. This campaign is about bringing a business leader and outsider to represent CD-05 in Congress.”

Christine Jones Hits Hillary Clinton Hard in Recent Commentary

Christine Jones

Christine Jones

Yesterday, I excoriated Hillary Clinton over her unethical use of the Clinton Foundation as a donation laundering operation and “pay to play” tool to accommodate foreign dictators. Today, I’ll remind voters of the Clinton speech racket.

Since 2001, Hillary and her husband have engaged in making speeches before powerful special interest groups that have raked in millions of dollars for their private foundation and their own personal wealth. In fact, in a two-year period, she collected over $21 million from banks and corporations. This smacks of serious conflicts of interest and quid pro quo problems, especially when corporations and foreign interests had “business” before the US State Department.

Watchdog groups, journalists and even Bernie Sanders have demanded she release the transcripts of her speeches. What did she tell big banks like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley and when did she say it? What was her honorarium and how much did she personally pocket? These are questions she refuses to answer. Remember, this is a woman who admitted they left the White House ‘dead broke.’

Hillary Clinton has been anything but honest and ethical in her personal and professional life. In just over 100 days, Hillary hopes to capture the most powerful position in the free world to complete her goal of wanton ambition. Join me in rejecting Hillary and stopping the corruption of career politicians like Hillary Clinton.

Christine Jones for Congress

(Gilbert, AZ)Tuesday, the Jones for Congress campaign released another campaign commercial in the Republican Primary race for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.

The ad, called “Cutout,” shows Christine Jones navigating through a room of cutout career politicians asking important questions voters want answered.

Jordan Ray, manager for the campaign said, “This ad sends a powerful message and image that Christine’s opponents are all career politicians.” He continued, “Christine Jones is the only conservative business leader in this race who has created thousands of jobs. The same cannot be said about her political competitors.”

The commercial also reaffirms Jones’ pledge to secure our borders, protect our families from terrorists and balance our budget.
