America First Coalition of Candidates

Jim Marchant
Candidate for Nevada Secretary of State

Jim Marchant has been a leader and innovator in the computer software, Internet, and telecommunication industries beginning in 1984. He has founded and served as CEO and President of numerous technology companies.

In 1984 Jim founded and operated a computer software company and sold computers and software throughout the country.

In 1994 realizing the potential magnitude of the Internet, Jim founded and operated one of the first Internet service provider companies in the country. Being a pioneer in the Internet industry, Jim fought efforts by the Government to overly regulate the new revolutionary technology. And for that reason, Jim founded the Federation of Internet Service Providers of America (FISPA) and served as President for six years.

Under Jim’s tenure, FISPA formulated laws and lobbied the US Congress, FCC and State legislatures to enact most of the cyber laws that are in effect today.

Jim successfully lobbied against Internet taxation in Florida during the mid to late 1990s, receiving national press attention from both print and TV news media. This effort set a national precedent for no taxation on Internet access. As a result, most state legislators and the US Congress passed bills that would exempt consumers from paying sales tax on Internet access as well as no sales tax on online purchases through the Internet.

In addition, Jim successfully lobbied state utility commissions and the FCC to prevent the Internet from being classified as a utility keeping the Internet open and free from government regulatory control.

In 1999 Jim was appointed by the Florida Legislature and Florida Governor Jeb Bush to serve on the Florida Information Service Technology Development Task Force. This task force was established to automate Government agencies using the Internet to facilitate online interactions with its citizens.

In 1998 Jim raised approximately $17 million dollars to start one of the first VOIP telephone companies in the country and served as the CEO and President.

After retiring in 2003 Jim moved to Nevada in 2005 and continued to be active in politics.

In 2016 Jim ran for and won the Nevada State Assembly seat representing District 37 in Las Vegas. He served on the Commerce and Labor, Energy, Taxation and Government Affairs Committees.

After 2017 Nevada legislative session Jim was ranked as one of the top conservative legislators in the Nevada legislature by numerous conservative organizations.

In 2020 Jim ran for Congress for Nevada’s Congressional District 4. Jim was endorsed by President Donald J. Trump, Congressman Jim Jordan, Congressman Andy Biggs, Congressman Paul Gosar, and the House Freedom Caucus.

In February of 2021, Jim announced his intentions to run for Secretary of State in Nevada.

Rayla Campbell
Candidate for Massachusetts Secretary of State

I am a native of Boston that grew up in Scituate. I have lived in Randolph for the last 14 years and maintain strong family ties to the communities of Mattapan, Dorchester, Mission Hill, Roslindale. While campaigning I have developed many relationships across the state and this great nation. But my heart is in Massachusetts.
 
I have three beautiful children, Josephine, Hannah, and Tytan. I know what it means to struggle and to succeed. I want to show others–especially my children–that in America, the sky is the limit, and that no matter who you are, or where you’re from, nothing can stop you from achieving the American dream.
 
I am a fighter and am willing to stand on principle for what I believe. At the same time, I will listen to the people and incorporate all voices of the state. The people of Massachusetts are my family, friends, and colleagues. As I campaign across the state I hear the many disparate voices frustrated with the lack of representation. I will be working with and for those people to forge a platform that will unite them in shared prosperity and ensure a seat at the table in state politics.
 
Massachusetts deserves a Secretary of State focused on fairness and transparency. We need a rule of law Republican that understands both the people of The Commonwealth and their aspirations to have fair and clean elections with accessibility to the office for a fast-paced and dynamic time. The current Secretary of State is not focused on these values. He’s been feeding at the taxpayer-funded trough for 50 years. 26 As Sec of State! Nobody is named king and nobody is appointed Secretary of State for life. Bill Galvin has been pushing through his agenda from the shadows for decades while his office continues to make missteps and blatant unconstitutional violations left and right, answering to nobody. Blocking any attempt at oversight, scoffing at laws and the state’s constitution. It has affected me personally and I won’t sit by and allow it to happen to anyone else ever regardless of political affiliation.  
 
Massachusetts and the nation have a rich and proud history. But recently little by little, here in Massachusetts, there has been a flavor of communism and socialism mixed in and I don’t like it. When one party rules and think only they have the knowledge to make all the decisions. This is dangerous and affects everyone. When someone doesn’t vote because they feel their vote isn’t counted or doesn’t matter, that’s suppression. When people are misled or misinformed due to bias of various media platforms, It’s suppression. When public radio and tv is a polluted propagandist for the left, that’s suppression. Nobody should ever feel an election is preordained but sadly many do. Voter suppression comes in many forms and I am here to ensure every person who wants to vote and anyone who wants to run for office can do so. Every vote will be counted not in back rooms but in the light of day.
 
I will steadfastly follow the laws and statutes on the books and provide the necessary oversight needed with an eye towards streamlining processes. We need a fresh look at systems that need upgrading and updating so to encourage civic participation. We need to revitalize corporate growth by removing the bureaucracy and red tape making it easier to do business in the commonwealth and I will diligently monitor markets and securities for the taxpayers of Massachusetts. I am up for the challenge.

Jody Hice
Candidate for Georgia Secretary of State

Free and fair elections are the foundation of our country. What Brad Raffensperger did was create cracks in the integrity of our elections, which I wholeheartedly believe individuals took advantage of in 2020. Though I am encouraged to see the General Assembly taking it upon themselves to address some of the glaring issues in our elections, Georgia deserves a Secretary of State who will own the responsibilities of the office. If elected, I will instill confidence in our election process by upholding the Georgia Constitution, enforcing meaningful reform, and aggressively pursuing those who commit voter fraud.

Every Georgian, in fact, every American has the right to be outraged by the actions and, simultaneously, the inaction of our Secretary of State. Our state deserves a leader who steers clear of scandals and focuses on the incredibly important duties of the office. If elected, my top priority will be ensuring every Georgian’s legally cast ballot is counted in future elections. I am excited about our campaign and I know together we can renew integrity!

Audrey Trujillo
Candidate for New Mexico Secretary of State

The state of New Mexico deserves fair, free elections and that starts with a Secretary of State who believes in one vote per registered legal voter.

Audrey Trujillo is a 15 generational Native  New Mexican, born and raised in Santa Fe, NM. She graduated from Santa Fe Highschool in 1990 and went on to College at the University of NM where she graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice, BA in Spanish and Portuguese and a MA in Public Administration.

In addition, Audrey is a small business owner and operated a licensed Child Daycare for over 10 years while pursuing her degrees at the University of NM.

After graduating from College, she met her husband of 20 years and together raised a family of 2 sons ages 17, 18 and 1 daughter age 11.

During this time Audrey put her career goals aside to be a stay at home mother and raise her children. Nonetheless,  Audrey stayed active with the community by volunteering for many activities and positions that surrounded her growing children. Some of these positions include Director of the Corrales Mentor Center that taught anti-bullying seminars, Martial Arts, Self Defense courses for children and adults. In addition Audrey volunteered at the Corrales Elementary School where her children attended as the PTA Treasurer and PTA President. She also volunteered as the PTO President for Taylor Middle School where her older children attended. Besides volunteering and community outreaching, Audrey has been an active citizen in her community and in the State of NM. Audrey is known for her Conservative Activism and organization of Community events that bring awareness to detrimental bills and laws. Audrey has testified against many bills that would have negatively effected our citizens and the New Mexican way of life. 

In addition, Audrey has also taken part in the grassroots efforts to pursue a forensic audit that would help expose the voter fraud in NM elections. 

Currently Audrey holds position of the Republican Hispanic Political Director for the State of New Mexico.

Audrey’s dedication to the people of New Mexico is what makes her stand above the rest. She has been a voice for our children and our elderly and every New Mexican.

Her goals as Secretary of State are to focus on fair elections, bring back integrity and make sure every legal citizens vote is counted.

For far too long we have seen corrupt elections in the State of New Mexico and it is primarily because we have not been paying attention. Many elected officials are in office not because they are the right person to represent the people, but because we have a good old boy mentality. “Current laws against voter fraud need to be implemented and those found guilty prosecuted to the fullest degree.”

It is a federal crime to rig an election or take part in voter fraud. Currently there is a $10,000+ fine and/or 10 years in prison. As the Secretary of State, Audrey will hold all accountable no matter what party or affiliations. One fraudulent vote is too many. As the record keeper of the State, Audrey will make sure that every county clerk is held responsible to her duties for their counties. It is important to Audrey that we use safe Technologies to streamline processes and ensure quick responses for inquiries.

Audrey is focused on bringing back integrity and honesty to the office of the Secretary of State.

Every registered citizen should not have to wonder if their vote counted. Every vote will always be secured under the administration of Audrey D. Trujillo.

Vote for a integrity and accountability in New Mexico elections. Vote for common sense voter security measures including voter ID and eliminating unsecured ballot boxes. Vote to stop Voter Fraud in NM! Audrey Trujillo is the only candidate that has proven her loyalty and persistence to stand with the people of New Mexico. Vote Audrey Trujillo “True Hero” of New Mexico.
