A Georgia congressional candidate who has called the debunked QAnon conspiracy theory a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out" is locked in a competitive primary runoff this week. Top Republicans, however, seem content to let her do her thing until the problem can't be ignored anymore.

Self-funded businesswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene placed first in the Republican primary on June 9 with 40% of the vote in Georgia's 14th Congressional District, which is currently represented by retiring Rep. Tom Graves. Because she didn't gain more than 50% of the vote in the first round, she'll face off against second-place finisher neurosurgeon John Cowan in Tuesday's runoff.

Her win earned a congratulatory tweet from President Donald Trump, after Facebook removed an ad where she's holding a gun and telling antifa to "stay the hell out of northwest Georgia."
