Every QAnon Candidate to Win 2020 Election Race

There are now officially politicians who have expressed support for the conspiracy theory QAnon heading for Congress after winning their respective seats, although a large majority of other candidates missed out.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the most high-profile candidates known to have backed the radical conspiracy as well expressing a number of racist, anti-Semitic and Islamaphobic views.

Her victory in Georgia's 14th congressional district was long predicted after her Democratic opponent dropped out in September, leaving her unopposed.

"Now there's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it," she said in a Facebook video from August 2017.

During the campaign she was questioned about support of QAnon—the conspiracy theory which purports that Donald Trump is waging a secret war against the "deep state" and high-profile Satan-worshipping pedophiles—as well her racist remarks.

Greene later distanced herself from the radial theory which has alleged links to anti-Semitism, telling Fox News that she decided to "choose another path" after seeing "misinformation" during her research into QAnon.

Despite there being dozens of other candidates who tied themselves the QAnon, only a few were also able to secure election victory.

One of those who did was Republican incumbent Eric Berthel, who managed to win Connecticut's 32nd Senate district despite being dogged by controversy over a bumper sticker on his car which had the hashtag #WWG1WGA"—an abbreviation of the QAnon slogan "Where we go one, we go all."

He defended the sticker in September, saying that he does not support of the "wild-eyed theories" surrounding QAnon, such as the idea of secret satanic pedophile rings, but agreed with some of its principles such as "stopping corruption in politics, holding government accountable and protecting individual freedoms."

His Democratic opponent, Jeff Desmarais, said Berthel's association with the "far right-wing, over-the-edge conspiracy theory" meant he is unfit for office.

"This is something where you're taking gutter politics, gutter discussion, poisonous stuff and promoting it as an elected official with your elected official's license plate," he said. "To me, that's disqualifying for public service."

Prior to his victory, Berthel said that he hoped that voters would "see beyond the negativity," come Election Day in reference to his affiliation to QAnon, reported Republican American.

Elsewhere, incumbent Republican Susan Lynn is on course to heavily defeat her independent opponent Tom Sottek in Tennesse's House District 57.

Lynn was found to have a flag with a Q made up of stars and the "WWG1WGA" slogan underneath as her Facebook page's cover photo. She also sent several tweets using the WWG1WGA hashtag and shared a tweet which included the hashtag #TheGreatAwakening, a phrase commonly invoked by QAnon supporters,

Speaking to The Associated Press in September, Lynn said she doesn't support QAnon conspiracy theories.

"This is the United States of America, and I am absolutely free to tweet or retweet anything I want," she said. "I don't understand why this is even an issue. Believe me, I am not in the inside of some QAnon movement."

Lauren Boebert, a far-right Republican who has spoken positively about the QAnon conspiracy theory, is also set to win Colorado's 3rd Congressional District after her rival Diane Mitsch Bush conceded.

Boebert, who has also kept her restaurant open in defiance of coronavirus lockdown guidelines in the state, previously told the Steel Truth podcast in June: "Everything that I've heard of Q, I hope that this is real."

The show is presented by outspoken QAnon believer Ann Vandersteel.

However, Boebert has since frequently attempted to distance herself QAnon, previously telling Newsweek: "I am on the record multiple times stating I am not a follower of the group you and others so desperately want to connect me to."

A campaign spokesperson for Boebert added: "Lauren has gone on the record multiple times stating she does not follow QAnon."
