It is beyond me why the voters in CD5 would want to be saddled with Christine Jones as their Representative in Congress. She’s clueless about the character and demographics of its citizens–she lives in CD9, not CD5. How do you “represent” citizens you know nothing about? CD5 is one of the most conservative, family-oriented districts in Maricopa County. After reviewing the history of Christine Jones, my head hurts. But not as badly as the perpetual migraine that she will inflict on CD5. Take away her paid handlers and well, think of a Conservative, and then take away courage, conviction, and good judgment.
Jones has a history of contradicting herself to the point of absurdity. Add to this a shaky grasp of the Republican platform, high praise for Hillary Clinton, and a tendency toward self-aggrandizement.
Christine Jones wants to be…Governor…Secretary of State… Mayor…U.S. Senator…U.S. Representative…Somebody!
Her reason for not taking on her own district (CD9) defies logic.
CD9 is currently represented by Democrat/Liberal/Leftist Kyrsten Sinema. Jones would be a conservative heroine if she had run in her own district and beat Sinema! In November 2015, Jones was asked if she planned to run against Sinema in 2016. She stated "Although (the 9th District) appears eminently winnable, pursuing a seat in Congress at this time is not the highest and best use of my time." See Christine Jones Won’t Challenge Kyrsten Sinema.
By April 2016, she decided to pole vault into CD5 and run against a solid constitutional conservative, former Senate President Andy Biggs.
This carpet bagging didn’t sit well with the Republican Leadership of CD5. They quickly responded in an 4/8/2016 Intellectual Conservative article titled CD5 Republican Legislative District Chairs call for Local Representation as follows:
