In February 2006, John Cox announced he was a candidate for the Republican nomination for President in 2008.

John Cox is running for California Governor to take California back from the special interests that own the politicians in Sacramento. Those special interests, and the politicians they bankroll, have given us the highest income tax as well as the highest poverty rate in the nation. They have wrecked our once-proud school system, driven small business owners to relocate their business and jobs to other states, and utterly failed to build the water storage facilities we need to manage California’s abundant water supplies.

John Cox is a graduate of the University of Illinois where he majored in accounting and political science. Cox later recieved his Juris Doctorate from Illinois Institute of Technology / Chicago Kent College of Law. John was born on the near north side of Chicago, he has three daughters who are currently teenagers.
