Adam Laxalt

U.S. Senate, Nevada

Adam Laxalt graduated Magna Cum Laude from Georgetown University and graduated from Georgetown University Law Center. Additionally, he is a former Naval Officer and Iraq Veteran, serving in Iraq detainee operations. Laxalt’s team was in charge of more than 20,000 detainees during the surge, keeping America’s troops and citizens safer by assisting with the detention and prosecution of thousands of war criminals and terrorists. For his exemplary service, Laxalt was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal. His unit was also awarded the Joint Meritorious Unit Award. While on Active Duty, Laxalt served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and as an Assistant Professor of Law in the Leadership, Ethics, and Law Department at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Anna Paulina Luna

Congress, FL-13

Anna Paulina Luna is a strong independent leader, earning her stripes by serving her country, not by serving herself. Raised by a single mother in Southern California’s low-income neighborhoods, Anna learned that she must work hard and be independent to succeed.

Anna decided to run for Congress because she recognized that the media had to cover what was going on in Capitol Hill. As someone who has lived experience with the problems that plague many of America’s communities, especially low-income and minority ones, Anna is committed to showing people that there is another way and that big government is primarily the problem, not the solution.

Anna believes the far-left wing that now controls Congress, along with its elitist media enablers, does not truly value Americans – impoverished minorities – for anything more than their votes.

As a mixed-race female who fought her way out of poverty by joining the United States military, Anna developed her political beliefs due to her own lived experience.

Anna knows the leftist power structures will stop at nothing to keep someone who looks like her and grew up as she did from being able to impact public policy if they have right-leaning beliefs. And Anna knows that it is because she can directly contradict their false narratives about far-left ideologies like open borders, defund the police, government dependency, and overtaxing/overregulating being helpful to people trapped in communities like where she grew up.

Bill Huizenga

Congress, MI-4

As a representative of Michigan, Bill has proven himself to be a leader in the effort to rein in Washington’s out of control spending and prevent tax increases on hard working middle class families and small business job creators.

Bill’s other areas of focus include, protecting the sanctity of life, limiting the role of the federal government, preserving the Great Lakes, and creating a sensible regulatory environment that provides for necessary safety standards without negatively impacting the private sector’s ability to expand and create jobs.

Blake Masters Arizona

Blake Masters

US Senate, Arizona

Arizona deserves a Senator who understands what’s going wrong in America, and how to fix it.

We need to stop illegal immigration, rebuild the American middle class, and take back the culture from far-left activists.

Cory Mills

Congress, FL-7

Cory believes that the American people are the greatest “checks and balances” against government abuses of power. Our beloved Constitution begins with three words, “We the People.” Our elected officials in Congress are elected by their constituencies to be “Representatives” of the people. That is precisely the role in which Cory intends to serve.

It’s time to re-empower the voice of “We The People” in Florida’s 7th District. Too much partisanship and radical division has weakened our great nation. Paraphrasing President Abraham Lincoln, Cory intends to be a voice of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Harriet Hagemen

Congress, AL-WY

I am a deep-rooted Wyomingite. Raised on a ranch near Fort Laramie, I grew up understanding the value of hard work, integrity, self-sufficiency, and honesty. Here in Wyoming, we have a long and proud history of standing up against an overbearing government. And now, we are fighting back against big government bureaucrats who want to manage our lands, control our lives, and dictate what we are allowed to think and say.

I have dedicated my career to fighting for the people of the great State of Wyoming as we’ve been under assault from Washington, D.C., and career politicians. For the last 20 years, I have been fighting back against Federal agencies that try to usurp our rights with overbearing regulations. I’ve never allowed my Conservative values to be shaken in the face of Left-Wing ideologues.

As an attorney, I battled Bill Clinton’s attempt to block access to one-third of our National Forest Lands, stopped the EPA’s efforts to take control of our irrigation infrastructure and operations, blocked the USDA from forcing our livestock producers to use radio-frequency eartags and register all of our ranches with the federal government, and more. Now I am ready to fight for Wyomingites in Congress.

Herschel Walker

US Senate, Georgia

Herschel Walker grew up in Wrightsville, Georgia, where he learned discipline, faith in God, and the value of hard work.

Herschel has been successful in whatever he has set his mind to. Whether on the football field, in the classroom, at the Olympics, in Mixed Martial Arts, as CEO of multiple businesses, or as spokesman for an organization helping U.S. soldiers struggling with mental illness, he has strived for excellence.

Herschel believes that America is at a crossroads, and he refuses to sit on the sidelines while national leaders take our country down the wrong path. Herschel Walker is a kid from a small town in Georgia who has lived the American Dream, and now he is running as a Republican for the United States Senate to keep that dream alive for everyone.

Hung Cao

Congress, VA-10

Hung Cao is a retired Navy Captain who served in Special Operations for twenty-five years. He and his wife April are the parents of five beautiful children whom they homeschool. After their thirteenth move across the United States and around the world in the  service of our nation, Hung and April made their home  in Purcellville, Virginia where they have been active in their community and their church, Cornerstone Chapel for the last five years.

JD Vance

U.S. Senate, Ohio

Ohio needs a true conservative in the U.S. Senate. It needs someone who understands how our economic and government leaders conspire to make life harder for normal Americans. It needs someone who knows what it’s like to live in a left-behind community. It needs someone who is not a career politician, recycling cheap establishment talking points instead of focusing on our real problems. A conservative outsider. That outsider is JD Vance.

Joe Kent

Congress, WA-3

In over 20 years of fighting on the battlefields and through my wife’s death, I know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of failed policy. The Establishment is too self-absorbed to represent the will of the people they are supposed to represent. I have also seen firsthand that you cannot persuade someone to fight when the odds are against you. Only those with the courage of conviction will continue to fight when the odds are not in their favor. No one has asked me to do this. I’m volunteering now, just like I did 22 years ago. Suppose we rely on traditional candidates that have done nothing but run for office or have no experience in a hard fight and have never been in danger. In that case, our voices and our movement will succumb to the left’s dark vision for this nation. Portland and Olympia demonstrate this with their failed policies that surround this great district.

I want to go forward and fight because I want to fight, and I know how to fight. This is for the future of our nation and the legacy that we will leave for our children. This is what is compelling me to run for office. It would be an honor to earn your vote and serve this great country once more.

John Gibbs

Congress, MI-3

With more than 20 years of experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, John was appointed by President Trump as Acting Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development at HUD under Secretary Ben Carson, where he oversaw an annual budget of $8 billion to help fight homelessness and expand economic opportunity. He also led the successful deployment of more than $9 billion in CARES Act funds in response to coronavirus, making sure families got the help they needed to put food on the table during the pandemic.

John was nominated by President Trump to be the Director of the Office of Personnel Management. He was also appointed by the 45th President to serve on the 1776 Commission, where he fought Critical Race Theory and similar extremist ideologies by helping communities focus educational curricula on the founding documents and principles rather than divisive identity politics.

Before government service, John used his complete fluency in Japanese to serve in Christian missions in Japan, where he helped churches reach the vulnerable using technology, and deployed homeless outreach strategies for Japanese churches. Prior to his service in Japan, John worked as a software developer in Silicon Valley on cybersecurity products at Symantec, and on the first version of the iPhone at Apple.

Gibbs is a Michigan native, the grandson of Black sharecroppers from the deep south, and the first in his family to attend college – a life journey which exemplifies the opportunity our great nation provides. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University, and a Master in Public Administration from the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government.

Loren Culp

Congress, WA-4

If you want to know what he’ll do in Congress, look at what he did before he ever decided to run for public office.

From standing up for our Constitutional Rights to taking on the corrupt establishment Republicans, Loren Culp is running for Congress to put America First in Washington DC–because that’s what he’s always done. Learn more “On the issues“.

Max Miller

Congress, OH-16

Max Miller served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and on the White House staff as a Senior Advisor to President Donald J. Trump.

Growing up in Ohio, Max saw first-hand the havoc wreaked on middle America’s middle-class by politicians who abandoned them in favor of cheap, exploitative foreign labor.  He watched the government enable big corporations to sell addictive drugs to struggling people who didn’t need them or know their risks.  Max also shares the frustration that Northeast Ohioans have with Congress failing to do the people’s work while it instead spends time playing virtue-signaling political games.

The people want steel-spined leaders that stand up to all who would take advantage of them – whether foreign adversaries, domestic profiteers, or anti-American ideologues.  Max is running for Congress to stand up for the people of Ohio’s 16th District and represent their interests in Washington.  Unbending and straightforward, Max Miller will be their champion.

A Cleveland native, Max earned his Bachelor’s degree from Cleveland State University.  He serves on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.

Patrick Witt

Congress, GA-10

America is the greatest country in the world. We’re so blessed to call her home. But now more than ever, America’s fate hangs in the balance. A new generation of patriots must step up to defend her.

Hate-America liberal elites seek to tear our country apart from within and entrench themselves in power permanently. Woke cancel culture in our workplaces. Divisive Critical Race Theory in our children’s schools. Men competing in women’s sports. Defund the Police making our neighborhoods less safe. Big Tech censorship. A porous southern border. A dystopian surveillance state that spies on its own citizens and jails political dissidents. A corrupt fake news media that pushes Democrat propaganda. A Biden administration that shills for China. And a bunch of weak, do-nothing Republicans who are content to swirl their wine and manage America’s decline.

We need conservative fighters with the knowhow and the guts to rise up and lead. It’s time to go on offense and take our country back.

I’m Patrick Witt, and I’m the America First candidate running to be your next congressman.

As a senior official in the Trump administration and a key member of the president’s post-election legal team in Georgia, my job was simple: fight for the America First agenda and stop the Democrat takeover of our elections.

In Congress, I will continue to fight for you with everything I’ve got. I will always put your family’s concerns first. And I will never cave to the Democrats or their accomplices in the fake news media or Big Tech.

I will listen to and act on your concerns, and I will be a leader in the House of Representatives who gets results for you. The stakes are too high for us to stay on the sidelines in 2022.

Let’s Take Back America. Vote Patrick Witt for Congress.

Russell Fry

Congress, SC-7

Russell Fry is a courageous, consistent conservative who gets things done. As State Representative for District 106 and a champion of the America First agenda, Russell is a leading voice on election integrity, growing the economy, ending human trafficking, and battling the opioid epidemic.

As Chief Majority Whip, Russell was instrumental in passing the Open Carry Act (the biggest advancement in Second Amendment rights in 25 years) and the Fetal Heartbeat Bill (the strongest prolife legislation ever approved by the General Assembly). Additionally, Russell helped shepherd through the South Carolina House the Religion is Essential Act, which prevents government from closing our churches’ doors. He also co-sponsored bills to expand school choice, ban vaccine passports, save women’s sports, close primaries from crossover political meddling, require ID to vote via absentee ballot, and establish term limits to end career politicians.

Before being elected to guard the faith, families, and freedom of his fellow citizens, Russell practiced law along the Grand Strand. He worked his way through Charleston School of Law where he served as president of the Student Bar Association, helped the school achieve its American Bar Association accreditation, and even received the prestigious Civility Award.

An Eagle Scout and Socastee High School alumnus, Russell graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in business administration.

Born in Surfside Beach, Russell’s parents taught him from an early age that with hard work and a good education, the American Dream is within reach. He experienced that firsthand as a child—living in a cinderblock home with no heat or air-conditioning—as his parents struggled from paycheck to paycheck, saving when they could and tightening their belts when they had to.

Russell understands the things that matter most to us are never guaranteed—they’re earned. That’s why he’ll never take your support for granted and is committed to earning your vote.

Russell Fry is a loving husband, dedicated father, and conservative leader. He has spent his adult life championing America First causes. Russell, wife Bronwen, and their young son James are members of Palmetto Shores Church. The Fry family lives in Murrells Inlet with their chocolate lab, Jasper.
