For Audrey Trujillo, running for Secretary of State is the beauty pageant she always dreamed of entering. Her social media is a barrage of thirst trap Glamor Shots: heavy makeup, big jewelry, tight dresses, platform shoes–and an immediate “Thank you!” in response to every lonely pervert who comments on her looks.
There are legitimate reasons not to vote for her. The election fraud allegations, her gun give-away fundraising scandal that she blamed on her staff, the Jewish conspiracies, blaming hackers for poor taste posts on Twitter…
But politics isn’t about legitimate grievances. It’s a popularity contest, and Trujillo is on track to lose this contest by the same margin she lost the District 23 race in 2020: a landslide.
According to financial reports, she has been out-raised $82,000 to $583,000. One could argue that it’s because her opponent, incumbent Maggie Toulouse Oliver, is so corrupt that the corporate overlords are funneling dark money into her campaign to ensure the wheels of election fraud stay greased. A more reasonable explanation is that New Mexico is a solid blue state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by 180,000 voters.
But the actual reason she’s performing so poorly is because nobody wants a car selfie candidate who thinks the incumbent is tinkering with voting machines to keep New Mexico blue.
Maybe she needs to get out more, but with the exception of low-population rural counties, New Mexico is indeed blue. Just ask around. Or look at the vax data (since COVID is very much a Red-versus-Blue issue). Recent election results have been consistent with the polls, and polls have consistently shown what the registration data already tells us.
As the Rio Grande Foundation reported, Democrats have maintained majorities in the state House for 85 years, the Senate for 83 years, and the governor’s office for 61 years, with zero (0) Republican trifectas (where the GOP had control of all three).
You can point to big city ballot harvesting and Big Tech’s censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop as examples of genuine election “interference.” But to claim “fraud” is to believe Democrats have been stealing New Mexico elections for the better part of a century–long before Dominion became a household name. It means only Reagan and George W (once) were powerful enough to wrestle the levers of election manipulation from the Democrats and pull out a victory.
It’s ridiculous, and it’s one of the dumbest campaign strategies I have ever witnessed. Think about it. Your campaign message is that elections are fixed. If you lose, you can say “See! It’s rigged!” But what if you win?
And what’s your response when Yvette Herrell, as Conservative a Republican as they come, wins (again) in Congressional District 2?–that Toulouse Oliver just really hates the gays and doesn’t like people named Gabe?
If you believe ballot shenanigans are keeping the other party in power, and you know that to win you need to garner 75% of Independents to offset the other party’s 13-point registration advantage, why would you accuse half the state of being in a party that not only cheats, but commits federal felonies by rigging elections?
The conspiracies are idiotic. Branding herself a “True Hero” without military or law enforcement service was an overreach. But the Glamor Shots selfies are the final straw for me.
The Republican Party of New Mexico needs to get its act together. Scrap the bylaws, quit pretending you’re objective in the primaries, and send out a search party to find candidates who can win on merit. Candidates who are actual heroes. Candidates who understand that you can’t win over a majority Democrat populace by accusing them all of cheating.
We on the Right call out the Left for voting in anybody with a D next to their name. We have to be better than that. To change the political culture of this state, we need candidates who take the job seriously, understand where the majority stands, and have policy ideas that appeal to more than a fringe of the electorate.
Trujillo isn’t it.
Which is why I’m writing in Tom Selleck for New Mexico Secretary of State.
Republicans, if you want my vote, you have to earn it.

I’m not up to speed on Trujillo but the critique seems a bit harsh. I sense the job is a real climb given her background. Quite true about the D-R margin differences but we would like clarification and assurances that we don’t have improper voters on the rolls and that the counts can be confirmed.
It is harsh. Could have been harsher. She’s unfit for the job and her campaign is hurting the reputation of the party, if that’s possible.
Is this where we are in 2022? Commenting on a woman’s looks? This article is a series of schoolboy punched with no meat behind them. A piss poor excuse for a bit piece.
Every citizen of this country should regularly question government and ask hard questions. We elect these people to serve us, not run our lives or do things for their own gain. Audrey has questioned the elections – rightfully, since our machines are not certified or secure. Maggie herself admitted it. Maggie Oliver is defensive and refuses to participate in any debate or outreach to the people. Any attempts to question her are seen as attacks. She even admitted in the Santa Fe Journal that she “has her therapist on speed dial.” Not someone I want as my SoS.
Do you really want to give Maggie Oliver another term? Maybe you need to look at FACTS as to why she has done a bad job and why she isn’t good for New Mexico. She’s been sued over 40x in the course of her job…more than any SoS we’ve had. You can do a case look-up for yourself; it’s public record. Maggie is funded mostly by out of state donors who have no stake in NM except for political/economic gain at your expense. Audrey’s money comes from local donors and regular citizens. Instead of using a DC Democrat PR form for her promotions, she uses grassroots citizens who volunteer to help. Sorry that isn’t “professional” enough for you. It’s genuine and I’ll go with that before I vote in another Soros protegee.
Maggie also doesn’t wear makeup or care about her appearance, so perhaps you’ll find her more palatable.

Scroll through her social media and you’ll see that Audrey appreciates when people comment on her looks.
And being polite and gracious is a problem?
I remember the FB and IG posts when Grisham modeled the jewelery she bought at Tom’s in Santa Fe during lockdowns – posing maskless no less. She also acknowledged complements and kudos. She herself gushed on Tom’s Instagram. Tom took the post down when people questioned him as to why he opened his store for her during lockdowns and threatened never to shop there again. Again, these are schoolboy punches. Low blows with no substance. You trolled Audrey’s feed back a few years, before she ever ran for office, for some of those photos. You also spouted a lot of allegations and opinions but no actual facts.
Address the things I said about Maggie and tell us specifically why you are ok with her performance.
It’s not a “problem,” it’s just not an insult to comment on someone’s looks when they themselves have encouraged it.
MLG isn’t running a glamor shots campaign.
Where did I say I was “ok” with Maggie’s performance? Did you read past the first sentence?
So I did look at https://twitter.com/AudreyT4NMSOS and https://twitter.com/AudreyforNM. Was there another account to check? I see a normal campaign feed. She is an attractive woman, no doubt. Is that a bad thing? She has entered the combat ring and is making an effort. The party clearly has a thin stable. Can’t discard anybody who will try.
She already has a hit squad https://audreytrujillogrift.blogspot.com/2022/06/audrey-trujillo-christian-nationalist.html?m=1 to discredit her.
From the ABQJournal: “The two tweets were shared from the Twitter account, @AudreyTrueHero, according to a Journal search of the site last week. Trujillo confirmed that’s her account.” The account went private after the article, then the name was changed.
This article is ridiculous. A complete joke. How sad this is where we are at in 2022. Commenting on the looks of Trujillo. What does her looks have to do with anything.
She apparently doesn’t mind people commenting on her looks, based on her replies on social media to all the other people who do it.
Maggie is the most corrupt SOS that New Mexico has ever had but let’s keep her because the other candidate is nice to people on social media. I feel so embarrassed for you.
Better a hot moron Republican than a dowdy radical Democrat.
