U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler accepted the endorsement on Thursday of congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene, a controversial fellow Republican who has spread baseless QAnon conspiracy theories and posted racist and xenophobic videos on social media.
Standing alongside Greene at a scenic park in west Georgia, the Republican senator said “no one in Georgia cares about this QAnon business” as she touted her latest endorsement.
“I know how the media twists people’s words. They do it over and over,” she said. “They even make up things. And what we agree on is that we are fighting socialism, that we are promoting conservative values. And I’m not going to stand for an attack on her character, because she has stood for American values.”
