Thirteen January 6th Attendees Are Running For Office

Newsweek reports:

Thousands of Donald Trump supporters were in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 to attend a rally protesting the outcome of the 2020 election, which later led to a violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Now, some of those attendees are running for state and local elected offices in the 2022 midterms.

These candidates, all running on the Republican ticket, were reportedly in the city on January 6 either for the “Stop the Steal” rally promoting falsehoods that the presidential race was rigged, or at the U.S. Capitol itself. Two of the candidates have even been charged for their participation in the events.

Read the full article. The candidates are running for state legislatures, for the US House, for governor of Nevada and Michigan, and for Arizona secretary of state. Some of the names will be familiar to JMG readers.
