GOP Groups Claim They Were Tricked Into Supporting Extremist Event

Right.


The upcoming convention hosted by Arizona University’s College Republicans United promised a dizzying line-up, including headliner white nationalist livestreamer Nick Fuentes, the “QAnon Shaman”—and support from local GOP officials—held at a three star boutique hotel in a suburb of Phoenix.

But some of those promises are quickly unraveling.

Although a flier this week touted Republican officials from Maricopa, Pima, and Yavapai Counties as the July 30 conventions’ official supporters, some spokespersons from those organizations claim that they were tricked into supporting an extremist event—others said they never agreed to participate at all.
