Full List of Republican Politicians Attending QAnon Convention in Las Vegas

Numerous Republican politicians have been listed as "special guests" at a QAnon convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, scheduled for this weekend.

State lawmakers and candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump are listed among QAnon influencers as attending the For God & Country: Patriot Double Down.

The event is organized by John Sabal, known by his Telegram moniker QAnon John, and will run from today to October 25.

Among the Republican attendees are a host of speakers who are considered major influencers in the evolving QAnon online conspiracy movement.

One of them is Ron Watkins, accused of at one time being behind the 'Q' account that sparked the conspiracy movement—a claim he has denied.

Watkins has also announced he intends to run for office in Arizona and has set his eyes on a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Since it was announced, the controversial QAnon event has hit several snags. These include PayPal canceling the Patriot Voice's account, Caesars refusing to host the event and Michael Flynn pulling out from the convention.

But the event was saved after major Trump backer Don Ahern said he would host the convention at Sin City's Ahern Hotel.

The QAnon conspiracy theory claims former President Trump would somehow expose a global cabal of satanic, cannibalistic pedophiles who operate a massive child sex trafficking ring.

But, following the inauguration of President Joe Biden, QAnon followers have latched onto other unfounded conspiracies, including claims the 2020 Presidential Election was somehow riddled by widespread voter fraud.

Here is the list of Republicans who are attending the For God & Country Patriot Double Down.

Rep. Mark Finchem

Arizona state Representative Finchem has long repeated the baseless claims that a nationwide conspiracy somehow stole the 2020 presidential election from Trump.

He was rewarded for his loyalty to the former president when Trump endorsed him for Arizona's Secretary of State, a position that would allow him to oversee elections in the state if elected.

Rep. Finchem previously appeared on QAnon-supporter media in May when he was featured on the RedPill78 podcast hosted by Zak Paine.

In a 2014 questionnaire that Finchem filled out for his candidacy for the Arizona House of Representatives, he said he was a member of The Oath Keepers, one of the largest anti-government extremist groups.

Sen. Sonny Borelli

The Republican Arizona state Senator has also repeated baseless claims that the 2020 Presidential Election was subject to widespread voter fraud.

Following the results of the Arizona audit, carried out by firm Cyber Ninjas on behalf of the GOP-controlled state senate, the confirmed President Joe Biden won, Sen. Borelli called for the election to be "nullified."

Despite the evidence, Borelli insisted the Maricopa County audit showed there was an Arizona election "cover-up" during an interview with former Trump senior adviser Steve Bannon on his War Room: Pandemic podcast.

Rep. Leo Biasiucci

Like other Republicans attending the QAnon convention, Arizona House of Representatives member Biasiucci has promoted baseless claims that Trump somehow won the 2020 Presidential election.

He sat alongside Sen. Borelli and Rep. Fincham at the Arizona election integrity hearing in November 2020.

In his speaker description on the Patriot Voice website, Rep. Biasiucci said he believed: "Trump won. Our elections are compromised and [Jeffrey] Epstein didn't kill himself."

Sen. Wendy Rogers

Sen. Rogers has frequently shared misinformation that Trump won the previous presidential election and also promoted election fraud claims in Arizona.

The Arizona state lawmaker has pushed the debunked great replacement theory and shared a Breitbart Twitter post about the border crisis, adding: "We are being replaced and invaded."

She has appeared on the anti-Semitic online website TruNews, which was permanently banned from YouTube in 2020 for hate speech.

Kristina Karamo

Karamo has been a vocal Trump loyalist and earned his pick for Michigan Secretary of State after she promoted the claim of widespread voter fraud during the 2020 Presidential Election.

According to The Detroit News, Karamo traveled to Arizona in June to view the state's 2020 election audit.

She claimed to have seen "overwhelming evidence" of fraud and said it raised "reasonable concerns about the results in Michigan, a state Biden won back from Trump.

The Arizona audit would, ultimately, uphold President Biden's victory, deflating QAnon followers' hopes that it could set off a wave of similar election fraud investigations.

Rachel Hamm

Hamm continues GOP efforts to run for Secretary of State positions across the county in a bid to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election.

While she is unlikely to succeed in California, a Democrat stronghold for decades, she has continued to claim that Trump would have won the state had it not been for supposed widespread voter fraud.

She has since been endorsed by QAnon darling Flynn who was heard saying the conspiracy's slogan "where we go one we go all" in a July 4, 2020, tweet. Flynn has since claimed he actually said a family motto.

Jim Marchant

The Republican is set to run for the Secretary of State in Nevada in 2022 and has also pushed for election integrity.

On his campaign website, Marchant said his "number one priority will be to overhaul the fraudulent election system in Nevada."

In September, Marchant shared a Facebook post where he also called for a "full forensic audit" in Texas.

A spokesperson for the Arizona Democrat Party told Newsweek they believed Republicans in the state were "out of touch."

The spokesperson said: "Instead of working to help Arizonans recover from a global pandemic, Republicans like Wendy Rogers and her proud supporters like gubernatorial candidate Karrin Taylor Robson are leaving the state and their constituents behind to cater to an out of touch and fanatical base that has a stranglehold on the Republican Party."

Newsweek has contacted Rep. Finchem, Sen. Borelli. Rep. Leo Biasiucci, Sen. Rogers, Marchant, Hamm and Karamo for comment.
