Jay Lawrence

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
Arizona House of Representatives
Political Affiliation:
Married with children
After 25 years of talking about conservative issues on my KTAR talk show I stepped up and ran so that I could do more than just talk. Since my election I have been a strong voice for Arizona’s families and traditional values. Working with John Kavanagh I have a 100% pro-life, pro-family, pro-school choice voting record. I’m an Air Force veteran, a former realtor, and I’ve won awards from pro-taxpayer and pro-family groups because of my conservative voting record. John and I have a challenger now who disagrees with our conservative records, so I hope we can count on your continued support. The left is even more aggressive than usual this year – please help us stop it here in District 23! Thank you!
