A growing number of candidates for federal office with ties to the QAnon conspiracy theory are winning their Republican primaries.

The latest candidate to join the list is Lauren Boebert, a restaurant owner and gun rights activist who defeated five-time incumbent Representative Scott Tipton in Colorado's Republican primary on June 30. Trump had endorsed Tipton but celebrated Boebert in a tweet on Tuesday, writing: "Congratulations on a really great win!"

Boebert previously expressed her openness to the "Q movement" in May during an appearance on Steel Truth, an online show hosted by QAnon believer Ann Vandersteel.
