Former GoDaddy executive vice president Christine Jones has announced she's running for the Republican nomination to succeed retiring U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon in a congressional district spanning Phoenix's eastern suburbs.

Jones ran an unsuccessful campaign against Gov. Doug Ducey for the 2014 Republican gubernatorial nomination.  She describes herself as a conservative business leader with a platform that will focus on immigration, fiscal and foreign policy.

Other Republicans vying for the 5th Congressional District seat include Senate President Andy Biggs, Arizona Rep. Justin Olson, former Pinal County Supervisor Bryan Martyn and former Maricopa County Supervisor Don Stapley.
