Republican who promoted QAnon wins Delaware Senate primary despite opposition from GOP

Yahoo News

Lauren Witzke, a conservative activist who has promoted the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, won the Delaware Republican Senate primary on Tuesday despite opposition from the state party.

Witzke defeated Marine veteran Jim Demartino, an attorney who was endorsed by the Delaware GOP, 57-43, carrying each of the state's three counties.

The Daily Beast's Will Sommer noted that Witzke has promoted a QAnon hashtag. She also went to an event wearing a QAnon shirt, "making her the second QAnon supporter to win a Republican Senate nomination this cycle" alongside Oregon's Jo Rae Perkins.

Witzke, who worked as an Iowa campaign operative for President Donald Trump, tried to distance herself from the inane conspiracy theory during the campaign.

Despite the efforts of the Democratic Socialists of America, we'll have Chris Coons to run her into the ground.
