The man many believe to be the mysterious Q behind the QAnon conspiracy theory announced he is running to represent Arizona in Congress.
Ron Watkins, who earlier this week filed a "statement of intent" to run for Congress, made an announcement video for his campaign that centered on the false claims that former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election.
"I also want to emphasize that we must stay vigilant and keep up the pressure — both here in Arizona and throughout the country — to indict any and all criminals who have facilitated election fraud. President Trump had his election stolen, not just in Arizona, but in other states, too," he falsely claimed.
"We must now take this fight to Washington, DC and vote out all the dirty Democrats who have stolen our republic," he said.
Watkins says he'll be challenging Rep. Tom O'Halleran (D-AZ), whom he described as "the dirtiest Democrat in the D.C. swamp."
"After attending a recent sermon by Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church, I've come to realize that following God's word is not always the easiest route," he said, referring to a pastor who believes abortion is "worse than the Holocaust" and should result in execution.
"Therefore, I have decided to double down — with God as my compass — to take this fight to the swamp of Washington, DC," Watkins said.
If he secures the GOP nomination, he might have a chance at the seat.
"O'Halleran won by just four percentage points in 2020, while President Biden won the tossup district by two points. Arizona, like all states, is redrawing its congressional lines to reflect new Census population counts, and initial proposals from the state's independent redistricting commission indicate the district may move to the right, giving the eventual GOP nominee a strong chance at victory in what's already shaping up to be a tough midterm election for Democrats," VICE News reported Thursday.
