QAnon promoter Ron Watkins is running for Congress in Arizona

Ron Watkins, long-suspected of being "Q", the mysterious figure behind the QAnon conspiracy theory and one of the leading purveyors of the false claim that the 2020 election was stolen from President Trump, announced his candidacy for Congress in Arizona this week. In a video posted to the social media platform Telegram, Watkins said that he was running for the Republican nomination in Arizona's 1st Congressional District to defeat the "dirtiest Democrat in the D.C. swamp," incumbent Congressman Tom O'Halleran, who has held the seat for four years.
