Republican who supports QAnon wins Georgia House seat

-

ATLANTA » Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, who expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories in a series of online videos, has won a U.S. House seat representi­ng northwest Georgia. Her candidacy was bolstered by President Donald Trump, who has called her a “future Republican Star.”

Greene was heavily favored in the conservati­ve district even before Democratic challenger Kevin Van Ausdal suddenly dropped out in September, saying he was moving out of state. Greene thanked her staff and asked supporters to pray for Trump to win reelection at a watch party Tuesday night, video of which was livestream­ed on Facebook.

In her remarks, Greene pledged to “fight hard to make sure that Nancy Pelosi and the squad and the radical Democrats in the House do not steal anything away from America, because this country was never ever meant to be a socialist nation.”

Greene is a businesswo­man and political newcomer who’s gained large followings on social media in part by posting incendiary videos and comments.
