John Cox, businessman and radio host from Illinois is running to try to secure the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Cox was the first Republican to declare a run, in March of 2006.
Cox has made regular visits to Iowa and claims to have been to all 99 counties, as well as having been to New Hampshire numerous times.
John Cox is socially conservative and might appeal to that section of the GOP.
However, having never been elected to office, and up against high profile candidates like John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, John Cox's chances at this stage are considered to be slight.
John Cox considers that he is "the only real conservative running for President"
