John Munger Enters 2010 Arizona Governor’s Race

Noted Attorney Offers Real Leadership, No Excuses

(PHOENIX, AZ) – Tucson attorney and business leader John Munger officially entered the Republican primary today as a candidate for Governor of Arizona. He filed required documents at the State Capitol this morning and will formally announce his candidacy on Tuesday, October 6th in Casa Grande. A former Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, Munger plans an extensive statewide campaign effort focused on his “Real Leadership…No Excuses” approach to restoring economic prosperity in Arizona.

“We’ve had far too many years of drifting government, led by professional politicians with little real

experience, responding only by crisis management,” Munger commented. “People who have followed my work and thinking know that I have a real plan to create jobs, investment and economic growth again in Arizona,” Munger added. “I also have the courage, vision and know-how to execute it.”

In his current role as Chairman of ImagineArizona, Munger is well known for his active promotion of policies that create economic growth, the empowerment of free people and limited government. He has also been consistently ranked among the most skilled and successful lawyers in Arizona. A proud military veteran, Munger has served as President of the Arizona Board of Regents, Chairman of the state’s second largest Chamber of Commerce, and Chairman of the Arizona Research Park Association. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Arizona College of Law.

John Munger will make an official announcement of his candidacy at 9:00am on Tuesday, October 6 at Victory Republican Party Headquarters in Casa Grande, AZ. He will then travel throughout the state on a four-day road tour, announcing his candidacy and discussing issues of specific importance to voters in each individual location.

  1. Not Impressed says

    Yawn…everybody knew he was going to run over a year ago, nobody is surprised or excited about this.

  2. I like some of his ideas, but anyone who could help run a campaign for John McCain is suspect to me.

  3. Munger wants six figure salaries for successful teachers. Now there’s one staunch fiscal conservative. Not.

    Have you heard his toll roads scheme to enrich a handful of Australian investors?

    I shudder to imagine Arizona with Munger at the helm.

    With Munger it’s not just a matter of no name recognition. He’s spewing out enough bad ideas to lose this race before it even starts.

  4. “No Excuses” – come on, that’s not fun!

  5. Anyone is an improvement over the last two Governors. I am ready to vote for anyone not named Janet!
