Alexis Martinez Johnson Pays $25,000 to Out of State Campaign Consultants, Forgets New Mexico

Republican Nominee for US House NM03 Alexis Martinez Johnson followed a familiar pattern of New Mexico Politicians and showed her true colors when she hired a Las Vegas, NV based campaign consultant group after the Republican Primaries, marginalized the the New Mexican Voice, and continues to campaign claiming “Traditional, New Mexico Values”.

Alexis Johnson paid $25,000 to a Las Vegas, NV based campaign consultant.

Although Alexis claims that she will fight for New Mexico and our values, she deceived the only New Mexican in the campaign (me) out of money, influence and power within the campaign that she promised me when I joined in October 2019 as campaign manager and was not paid for 10 months, and after I delivered a historic victory in the Republican Primaries, Alexis Paid $25,000 to an out of state campaign consultant who first joined the campaign on June 30, 2020.

On October 15, 2020 the FEC October Quarterly report for Alexis Johnson for Congress was due, and it provided a number of insights:

  • I was incorrectly listed as a “Consultant-Communications” when I was in fact a campaign manager.
  • You can see that I was paid $1250 twice in two week intervals.
  • McShane LLC, Las Vegas, NV based campaign consultants who joined the campaign on June 30, 2020, have been paid $25,008.

Alexis Martinez Johnson is attempting to re-write history by making it appear that McShane LLC is responsible for her victory in the June 2020 Republican Primaries. McShane LLC is composed of “Johnny Come Lately” Campaign Consultants who joined the Alexis Johnson for Congress on June 30, 2020 and are attempting to take credit for the historic win which I delivered to Alexis Johnson during the Republican Primaries which were held on June 2, 2020 and results determined on June 6, 2020.

A Native New Mexican who worked for Alexis for 10 months was paid $2500. An out of state, Campaign Consultant who joined the campaign a month after the Republican Primaries was paid over $25,000 from July 1, 2020 to October 1, 2020.

Despite claiming Traditional, New Mexican Values…Alexis Martinez Johnson Paid over $25,000 to Las Vegas, NV based Campaign Consultants Between 7.1.2020 and 10.1.2020.

My story reflects a historic problem within New Mexico Culture that continually persists: An out of state politician, a “Carpetbagger”, comes to New Mexico to get rich off of the backs of hard working New Mexicans, minimize their efforts, and once they have exhausted the “forgotten New Mexican” of time, energy and resources, they move on to their next victim, a “soon-to-be-forgotten New Mexican”.

The person from New Mexico within the Alexis Johnson for Congress — Myself, who was the sole provider the strategy, direction and “boots on the ground” for Alexis Johnson for Congress through the pre-primary victory — is being forgotten, and out of state interest groups, such as McShane LLC, have swooped in after the Republican Primary like vultures to get the money and attempts to take all of the credit away from the “forgotten New Mexican”.

Campaign Consulting Agreement, between Alexis Martinez Johnson and McShane, LLC dated June 30, 2020.

These two documents show the two sides of Alexis Martinez Johnson, the “True to New Mexico Conservative Values” New Mexican who had been part of the campaign since October 1, 2019 and delivered a historic victory in the June 2020 Republican Primary, and the following month when she “sold out” to an out of state campaign consultant based out of Las Vegas, NV.

Anyone who doubts my numerous contribution to the Alexis Johnson for Congress in the Pre-Primary Elections can ask any party “insider”, and start right at the top with Steve Pearce and Anissa Ford-Tinnin, Chairman and Executive Director of the Republican Party of New Mexico. Alexis Martinez Johnson is the wrong choice for New Mexico. Send Alexis back to Texas. www.AlexisMartinezJohnson.com
