QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene wins congressional seat in Georgia
Marjorie Taylor Greene — a Georgia businesswoman who has expressed support for the QAnon fringe conspiracy movement — has won a congressional seat in the northwest corner of the state.
With 27 percent of the Georgia vote tallied at 9 p.m., Greene had won more than 80 percent, NBC News reported.
She had been expected to win easily in the state’s 14th District after her Democratic opponent, Kevin Van Ausdal, disqualified himself and moved out of state in September, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Greene has spread discredited QAnon conspiracy theories on social media, the paper noted.
In August, Greene beat out neurosurgeon John Cowan to win the Republican nomination for the seat despite several GOP officials denouncing her candidacy after videos surfaced showing her expressing racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim views.
She first came under fire in June, when she posted on Facebook a campaign video in which she held an AR-15 rifle and warned Antifa to stay out of her state.
“BIG WIN TONIGHT!” Greene tweeted Tuesday night. “THANK YOU to the people of NW Georgia for choosing me to fight for them in Washington, DC.”
Greene was endorsed by President Trump.
