Republican candidate for governor of Arizona Kari Lake was seen having dinner with a top QAnon operator this week.
Ron Watkins, who calls himself CodeMonkeyZ, shared the news on the social media platform Telegram.
"Just had dinner with Kari Lake, the next Governor of Arizona," Watkins wrote on Tuesday. "She inspires me with her tenacity and willingness to lead the fight to take back Arizona from do-nothing RINOs."
Lake is a former newscaster who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump in her race for governor.
According to Vice, Watkins is a longtime QAnon activist who started a website about aliens. He was also a featured speaker at Mike Lindell's Cyber Symposium. Many believe that Watkins is the man behind the QAnon movement.
Both Lake and Watkins have been vocal about the fact that they believe the 2020 election was stolen from Trump. No court has found those claims to be true.
