Governor Mike Huckabee Endorses Longtime Friend Christine Jones
(Gilbert, AZ) – Wednesday, Former Arkansas Governor and Republican Presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, endorsed his good friend and conservative business leader, Christine Jones, in the race for Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.
The endorsement comes as East Valley citizens cast their early ballots. Governor Huckabee’s endorsement was released along with a video message in which he spoke amiably of his friend Christine Jones. In his message, Governor Huckabee points out that the elitist forces of Washington are scared to death of Christine Jones because she can’t be bought. “She’s my friend. She’s someone I know, someone I trust…” and, “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 interests and the status quo alive and well,” the Governor remarked in a personal statement.
Christine Jones welcomed the endorsement from Governor Huckabee saying, “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.” She continued, “Governor Huckabee’s message resonates with many citizens in the district who are tired of sending career politicians who perpetuate the problem. He knows I will bring a change and provide leadership and I am grateful for his trust and confidence.”
