Jonas has also produced television and radio projects for the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee and George H.W. Bush’s 1992 presidential campaign. In recent years, Jonas has worked on election reform and independent politics and was a co-founder of Unity '08, a groundbreaking national effort to put a bipartisan ticket on the 2008 presidential ballot.
