Jeff Smith Files for CD-6

Looks like Jeff Flake has a challenger!

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Gilbert, AZ – Congressional district 6 candidate Jeff Smith today submitted nearly 1700 signatures to Secretary of State Ken Bennett from district voters who support his campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The voters of Congressional District 6 will have a real choice this August in the Republican primary,” Smith said.  “It’s been 6 years since the voters have had a choice in the Republican primary.  This year they can choose to send a true conservative to represent them – one who has real private sector experience and will fight against the progressive agenda of Washington D.C.”

Today’s signature submission exceeds the minimum required by nearly 60%.  Smith said he expects to submit even more signatures prior to the May 26 filing deadline.

In case you missed it, Jeff Smith was also endorsed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

Gilbert, AZ – Congressional candidate Jeff Smith announced today that he has received the endorsement of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

“I am proud to endorse Jeff Smith for Congress in Arizona’s 6th Congressional District.  He offers the voters in that district a real choice this August in the Republican primary.  He is a true conservative that will fight to defend our constitution, reduce the size and scope of government, secure our borders, and end illegal immigration,” said Arpaio.

Commenting on the endorsement, Jeff Smith stated “I’m honored to have Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s endorsement.  He has been a leader, not only locally, but nationally, in the fight against illegal immigration.  His tough policies on criminals have made us all safer across Maricopa County.”

Jeff Smith is a lifelong conservative running for office for the first time. He is known as a solid fiscal and social conservative.

“Today our constitution is under assault from dangerous progressive forces.  I am committed to defending the constitution and the individual freedoms it guarantees.  I am also committed to combating the rampant growth of government and its outrageous spending.  Reinstating these conservative principles will provide the surest path to renewed job growth and economic prosperity for all Americans,” added Smith.

Jeff Smith is an independent stock and options investor with over 20 years of business experience in the Finance and Telecommunications industries.  He earned his undergraduate degree in Economics from Brigham Young University and his Masters of Business Administration from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University. Jeff and his wife Camille have three children, all of whom attend Gilbert Public Schools.  The Smiths are members of the LDS Church.

    Any challenge to a “TopBanana Republican” is a good one!

    Go Smith!

  2. Arpaio’s endorsement only means that Smith’s brown nose may be racially profiled.
