Jared Holt reports at Right Wing Watch:
Danielle Stella, a Republican candidate seeking to unseat Rep. Ilhan Omar from the U.S. House of Representatives in 2020, firmly supports the QAnon conspiracy theory, according to someone identifying themselves as communications volunteer who responded to Right Wing Watch’s inquiry.
We were answered by someone calling themselves Heather, who said she was an unpaid communications volunteer on Stella’s campaign who was forwarded our inquiry. Heather told us via email that she wanted to make clear that Stella “stands 100% behind the principles of patriotism, unity/inclusiveness (WWG1WGA!) and love for country that Qanon promotes.”
Stella filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission last month and promoted her candidacy at the “Defend Free Speech” rally in Washington, D.C., on July 6, which featured such far-right figures as Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Minnesota District 5, I’m challenging @IlhanMN for this seat, to serve the great men, women and children. I will fight for everyone’s voice to be heard. https://t.co/5qDT8h24ww #Stella2020 #StandUnited #IlhanMustGo pic.twitter.com/X5jpwyqvQs

This is not the answer @amyklobuchar . Your war on opioids has an awful effect on chronic pain patients, and Veterans; who have responsibly taken their prescription for years. Your opioid hysteria is harming patients who suffer severe pain such as those with terminal illness. https://t.co/Y3kXekgSed
