MI GOP Nominates QAnon Nutbag For Sec Of State

NPR reports:

Kristina Karamo, a community college professor who rose to prominence after claiming she saw election fraud in Detroit in the last presidential race, won the three-person race for secretary of state with about 67% of the vote at Saturday’s GOP endorsement convention in Grand Rapids.

At this weekend’s GOP convention, the party voted resoundingly to support former President Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election. About 2,000 delegates from across the state participated in the vote.

The convention was seen by many as the first major test of Trump’s influence over the 2022 elections. Trump’s former campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani attended the convention, as well as MyPillow founder Mike Lindell, who has become a leader in the election denial movement.

Karamo has been endorsed by Trump.

Michigan does not hold primaries for down-ballot state officials such as secretary of state. The parties’ nominees proceed directly to the general election.

Karamo is viciously anti-LGBTQ and has said that gay people are working to “normalize pedophilia.”

Last fall she declared, “There is no such thing as a child with two mommies or two daddies. That is factually incorrect.”
