June 2016: It is dusk in south Chandler, a sprawling city of roughly 250,000, whose dwellings spread out and punctuate the East Valley’s dry, flat desert landscape. As the sun begins its descent, the horizon turns into a deep hue of red and orange. Yet even as the sun is fading, there’s no sanctuary from the heat but going indoors, and it is here, in a beautiful home in an affluent neighborhood, that Christine Jones, a former executive of GoDaddy, has come to beg for votes, not money.
Jones is seeking to represent Arizona’s 5th Congressional District two years after her disastrous foray into Arizona’s gubernatorial race, where she spent $5.5 million and finished a poor third in the Republican primary.
Jones is the only woman in the four-way GOP race, but that’s not her only distinction. Among the candidates (the three others are Senate President Andy Biggs, Rep. Justin Olson of Mesa, and former Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley), she alone has not been elected to office. Perhaps more interestingly, she’s the only one who is not a Mormon in a district that is proud of its Mormon heritage.
