Meet Nick Braughton

Candidate For NJ State Senate District 23

At 18, after working with the Warren County Republican Committee to improve their grassroots strategy through leveraging a new digital platform, Nick was hired by The New Jersey Republican State Committee to serve as Data Director, where he expanded the use of the GOP's Digital Walk Book technology to nine counties and five legislative districts. 

Nick resigned his position to attend college at Georgetown where he was a Dean's List student studying Political Science. It was during his freshman year that he realized current marketing agencies don't serve smaller political campaigns or lack the knowledge necessary to properly target voters. Nick then launched Torch Marketing Solutions, LLC with his best friend Tyler Mitchell to find a way to offer the same marketing tools and technology big business's and campaign's utilize to local candidates. With the mindset that every candidate should be able to compete in the digital space, Nick and Tyler worked to create an affordable and easy solution that satisfies the unique needs of political candidates. 

After growing his small business to an award winning, full-service digital marketing firm, Nick entered political life by running for Mayor and later running for Freeholder where he fought to lower taxes and develop community initiatives that are still in place today.

In addition to his experience with the WCAATF, Nick is an active member of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in New Jersey and a member of the NJ for Lower Taxes Organization. 

His dedication to the people of New Jersey has been recognized through his induction to the Warren County Hall of Fame in 2016 and his nomination for New Jersey Citizen of the Year in 2018.
