Matt Salmon is a proven conservative fighter for Arizonans. Salmon served in the Arizona Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, where he earned a reputation for standing on principle and challenging the status quo, ultimately co-founding the Freedom Caucus alongside conservative leaders like Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, Mark Meadows, and Mick Mulvaney. Salmon was named “Defender of Liberty” the American Conservative Union and “Taxpayer Hero” by Citizens Against Government Waste. Among Matt’s many legislative accomplishments was sponsoring “Aimee’s Law,” a measure that gave “no second chances” for rapists, molesters, and murderers. Salmon led the fight to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a more affordable system that puts patients in charge of their health care – not government bureaucrats. He also served as chairman of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, where he secured the release of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi from jail in Mexico. Salmon is a lifetime member of the NRA with an A-rating. He is 100 percent pro-life and a proud advocate for our society’s most innocent – the unborn. Matt has been married for 42 years to his best friend, Nancy. They are the proud parents of four children and the proud grandparents of nine grandchildren.

Marco Lopez is running for governor because he believes in the Promise of Arizona – the promise that if you work hard and treat people with respect then you can make it here. It’s this idea that led Marco’s parents to immigrate to Arizona from Mexico nearly fifty years ago. They didn’t start out with much, but they dreamed that Marco and his sisters could do better than they did. That’s just what happened – Marco was part of the first generation in his family to go to college, became one of the youngest mayors in the country at age 22, served Governor Napolitano as Director of Commerce, and then served President Obama at the Department of Homeland Security. Next, Marco started his own small business which has brought high speed internet to 1 million low income families and is on track to create 15,000 jobs in Arizona. Marco is running for governor because he believes the Promise of Arizona is still possible, but for too many people today it’s out of reach. Marco has the leadership experience in the private and public sector to make that promise of opportunity that brought his parents to Arizona a reality for everyone.

Barry Hess is the Governor Arizona needs to take us forward, and out of the rut we've been in since Napolitano's reign. He is the only real, principle-driven libertarian candidate. He is above party politics and instead chooses to run on the principles he will apply in office. This is the 5th time that Mr. Hess has offered his gifts to serve the People of Arizona. He knows the players, and how things really work behind closed doors in our State. Barry has earned the respect of all parties and politicians in Arizona by making clear statements, and being the only candidate in the running to have never 'flip-flopped' on an issue. He believes that the State's sole purpose is to protect the rights and property of all of Arizona's citizens equally, and is committed to drastically cutting the budget; getting the State out of matters where it has no constitutional authority; solving the 'immigration' debate; holding the State accountable for damages from overreach; stabilizing Arizona's economy; completely de-criminalizing marijuana; and is dedicated to eliminating ALL direct taxation (i.e. personal income and property taxes) and filing requirements for ALL Arizonans.

Actions speak louder than hollow rhetoric. As a legislator, I have championed election integrity. As Secretary of State, I will remove the toxic partisanship that has eroded public confidence in our elections. The Secretary of State also handles business registrations. I will continue to advance the Business One-Stop portal to reduce regulatory burdens on our small businesses. My legislative record of low and flat taxes, consumer protection, and fighting child trafficking have earned me a perfect score from the Arizona Free Enterprise Club and recognition as a Champion of Liberty from the Republican Liberty Caucus. As Chairman of Ways and Means, I ran an efficient ship, killing any bills calling for a tax increase. By responding to constituent needs and concerns, I was re-elected in a purple legislative district in 2020. As your next Secretary of State, I will never back down from what is right. Rest assured, Arizonans know that I will work for the people and so will our staff. I will continue to advocate for common-sense election integrity measures to restore faith in our elections. This is what I intend to do for this office. Please visit www.BolickforArizona.com I humbly ask for your support.

Our democracy is facing a crisis. Too many voters in both parties have lost faith in our electoral process. Accusations of fraud, sloppy record keeping, and questionable security practices have led to an erosion of trust in the most sacred aspect of our democratic institutions. It was career politicians who have gotten us into this mess. And it will take an executive, a leader, a businessman and someone who has never held elected office to get us out of it. My name is Beau Lane. I am a native Arizonan, a husband, a dad to four great kids, and I’ve never been more worried for our state. With some Arizonans losing confidence in our elections, we need an immediate change in course. Regrettably, the people charged with administering our elections seem more interested in running for their next political position than doing the job they were hired to do. I’m not a politician. I’m a business owner/operator, I’m a community leader, and I am committed to restoring faith and trust in our electoral systems and operating the Secretary of State’s office with professional business practices. I am asking for your vote because our Democracy is worth fighting for.

Border security is national security. That’s why I’m running to be the next Attorney General for the State of Arizona. Drugs coming across the border are destroying lives. Fentanyl has become the leading cause of death for young Americans. More than two million people were caught crossing the border illegally last year, and unfortunately, many who cross illegally pose a very real threat to our personal safety and national security. I was the Border Security Section Chief for the United States Attorney’s Office under the Trump Administration. I led a team of people who worked every day to enforce our nation’s border laws. I personally prosecuted coyotes, gang members, cartels, and terrorists. I know what needs to be done to put an end to the border crisis. With violent crime on the rise, Arizona needs a leader in the Attorney General’s Office who will fearlessly fight criminals and passionately defend law enforcement. I have spent the last 15 years as a state and federal prosecutor protecting the rights and safety of all Arizonans, and that’s exactly what I will do as your next Attorney General. I have the right experience to tackle the most urgent issues facing our state today.

I’m a first generation American who has dedicated my life to defending the Constitution. As a prosecutor, I’ve defended the rule of law and put criminals away. As a U.S. Army Captain and Intelligence Officer who just returned from a deployment to the Middle-East – I know about protecting our state and nation. That's why I'm supported by Trump’s national security team: Ric Grenell, Kash Patel, and Robert O'Brien. I’m running for Attorney General because when I got back from my deployment, I no longer recognized our country. I witnessed Arizonans surrender their freedoms in the name of security, while the political class blatantly violated their own decrees. We watched as churches, schools, and small businesses were shut down while big-box stores remained open. They demonize our police while idolizing criminals. When do we say enough is enough? I say NOW. As Attorney General, I will prosecute criminals who terrorize our cities. I will ensure our elections are free, fair, and without fraud. I will go after the cartels that are importing drugs into our communities, treating them as the terrorists they are. I will safeguard our God-given freedoms. I’m running to be the Attorney General that fights for you

I am Bob Lettieri Running for Arizona Treasurer. I am A lifelong Conservative Republican who believes that low taxes and minimal government intervention equals a strong economy. Arizonan since 1979 and received my MBA from ASU in 1981. My career in corporate financial management spans 40 years with 30 years as a CFO. Some of the benchmarks of my career are raising over $100 million in the capital markets. Some of these fundings required me to invest the bulk of the money with major banks that offer trust fund management. Before the decision to invest was made I presented to the Board of Directs several options of investments that assured to the highest degree safety and liquidity of the investor’s money. The one constancies that ran through my career was the need for accurate information and the integrity of the decision maker when using the information. Those skill developed focus on facts and elimination of bias and special interests which I believe are essential for good government. Along with my C-Level experience I served on several Boards of Directors with committee chairman responsibility. Served as AZGOP Treasurer for four years.

The pillars of a quality education have been demolished in the state of Arizona. Instead of promoting academic achievement, educators are indoctrinating students in critical race theory and other radical propaganda. This results in student laziness and failure to master skills necessary for a successful life. My first priority is to get CRT out of our schools and to bring back the emphasis on academics. I want to bring strong conservative values back to our schools. I will promote real learning and fight for English immersion instead of bilingual. I intend to fight back against all types of brainwashing of our children. Moreover, under my leadership, our schools will stay open and not shut down to appease special interests. I’m the only candidate with the experience, knowledge, and integrity to do this job effectively. When I served as school board president and later as Arizona Superintendent, my team and I made undeniable progress: higher SAT scores and students better prepared for higher learning instruction. I put a stop to ethnic studies, which had CRT in its curriculum. But since I left office it has come back. I put a stop to it once and I will do it again.

I am the current Arizona State Mine Inspector who received an appointment in November 2021 upon Joe Harts Retirement. I know the value of hard work as I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran where I operated heavy equipment. This led me to my amazing career where I started as an equipment operator in 1994. I have moved up thru the ranks in the industry, and started mine safety in 2003, and promoted to Director of Safety, as well as an Operations Manager. I understand what it means to be a miner because I am a miner, who has worked along side miners throughout my career. I earned my CMSP (Certified Mine Safety Professional) in 2015 and have a proven track record of keeping miners safe and have successfully worked with regulatory groups to improve overall safety in the mining industry.

For five years, in front of the commission, I have been fighting empty promises, discrimination, neglect from the Corporation Commission staff, irresponsible rate setting, corruption, and refusal of service from a utility. It became painfully clear that for decades Arizonans have dealt with a Corporation Commission that has neglected the people. Corporations have essentially had free rein. Arizonans need someone with a proven track record, who is willing to stand up for them now, and in the future. Someone who will look out for their best interests proactively instead of reactively. Many Arizona utility customers, just like you, end up paying more than they should, having disconnection issues, and sometimes are even the victims of abusive practices by utilities. All of these are problems that I can, have, and are continuing to address. For five years I have been a customer, just like you, that has dealt with unfair and unjust utility issues. All things that I will continue address as a Commissioner. It’s time to start focusing on the issues that really matter for Arizona’s future. Let’s stop this trend and elect someone with the recent experience needed to serve you, the people of Arizona.

Candidate Info
Lauren Kuby, a two-term councilmember in Tempe, has spent her career standing up to special interests and fighting for consumer, environmental, and worker protections. Lauren has led Tempe's efforts on climate solutions, equal pay, earned sick days, animal welfare, urban forestry, transparency, and campaign reforms. Her dark-money ballot initiative earned 91% support from voters. For her efforts exposing the corruptive influence of money in politics, Lauren was featured in the docuseries, "American Swamp." Lauren is also a Global Futures Scientist at ASU, where she has helped develop water and energy initiatives. At the Stardust Center for Affordable Homes and the Family, she works with cities and nonprofits to connect the dots among housing, utility costs, food access, and transportation -- to support families and create healthy communities. Lauren is a national champion for clean energy and will bring back Arizona’s renewable-energy and energy-efficiency standards, which saved taxpayers billions of dollars. She is running alongside Sandra Kennedy to move Arizona toward a future where clean air, clean water, and clean energy are a given for us all, while holding corporations accountable and ending the history of corruption at the Corporation Commission. Please vote for Kuby AND Kennedy for Corporation Commission.
