A former executive for internet company GoDaddy has filed nominating petitions to enter the Republican primary for Arizona governor.

Christine Jones, a former executive and legal counsel for GoDaddy, filed Monday on the opening day of the regular filing period for the August primary.

Jones is running without public funding and touting her conservative credentials.

Secretary of State Ken Bennett was able to file for the GOP governor’s primary on April 10 because he gathered enough signatures and $5 contributions to qualify for public campaign funding.

Other announced Republican candidates include 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. Fred DuVal is only well-known Democratic candidate.
