NV: QAnon nutbar wins GOP nod for top elections post

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“Jim Marchant, a QAnon-linked candidate who has unabashedly embraced the idea of overturning future election results, won the Republican nomination to be Nevada’s top election official on Tuesday. Marchant has said that he ran for secretary of state at the urging of Juan O Savin, a prominent QAnon influencer. After losing a congressional bid by more than 16,000 votes in 2020, Marchant claimed he was the victim of fraud, but failed to produce any evidence of it in a lawsuit seeking to overturning the result. He has told voters that their vote hasn’t mattered for decades because Nevada’s leaders have ‘been installed by the deep state cabal.’ After Joe Biden won the state in 2020, Marchant supported sending an alternate pro-Trump slate of electors to Congress. He said in January he would be prepared to do the same in 2024.” (06/15/22)
