Son Of NBA GREAT Announces Bid For Congress!

The race to replace Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz looks to be hotly contested with 22 people in the race, per Fox News:

With Chaffetz’s resignation nearing, the deadline to file to replace Chaffetz in Utah’s third congressional district fell on May 26 — and 22 people made their bids official.

Fifteen Republicans, four Democrats, two independents and one Libertarian filed. Republicans and Democrats selected their candidates at their respective conventions during the weekend, but additional Republicans filed enough signatures to force a primary scheduled for Aug. 15.

One of the Republican candidates is the son of NBA great Danny Ainge:

Tanner Ainge, the son of Boston Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge, is one of the remaining Republican candidates left. Ainge received enough signatures to qualify for the August primary.

Ainge, an investment advisor, has worked for the firm HGGC, as an executive in the health care industry and as a lawyer for Kirkland & Ellis LLP, according to his campaign website. He graduated from Brigham Young University, studied Mandarin Chinese at Cornell and received his J.D. from Northwestern University’s school of law, the campaign website states.

Ainge’s campaign website explains his focus is on keeping the federal government small:

Tanner Ainge is a conservative Republican candidate focused on small government policies, economic growth and Utah’s core values. His experience in business, law and non-profit service have prepared him to be a powerful voice for Utah’s 3rd Congressional District.

Key issues important to Ainge, per his campaign site are: balancing the budget, reducing the national debt, reforming the nation’s tax code, preserving religious freedom and fixing the nation’s healthcare system.
