GoDaddy exec runs for governor in Arizona
 

Former GoDaddy executive Christine Jones is running for governor in Arizona.

Christine Jones, a former executive at GoDaddy, has filed her nomination today for governership in Arizona.

The 45-year old Republican candidate joined the web hosting company in 2002, back when GoDaddy had only a few employees. She left in 2011, after the company was sold to private investment groups.

Jones describes herself as an "unapologetic conservative" who is willing to fight illegal immigration and gun rights. She is also a strong advocate of improved education.

"I am proud to announce that our campaign officially filed our nominating petition signatures today! We turned in over 17,000 signatures from all 15 counties," she said. "A big thanks to all of our volunteers and supporters for their hard work and dedication these past few months-- we are now one step closer to victory on August 26th!"

In spite of running without funding, the ex-GoDaddy legal counsel is willing to spend millions in order to win the GOP race against other popular candidates including former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, state Treasurer Doug Ducey, state Sen. Al Melvin, former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas, and former California congressman Frank Riggs.

"I am an unapologetic conservative, I am a fierce defender of the Constitution, and as your governor, I assure you I will lead with untethered ideas," she told supporters on Tuesday.
