Jake Angeli, an Arizona man who dubbed himself the “Q Shaman,” celebrates being part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in an attempt to block Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election. The violent insurrection marked the first time in American history where there wasn’t a peaceful transfer of power. The crowd was spurred on by Donald Trump, who insisted baselessly that he lost the election to Joe Biden because of fraud. Photo by Win McNamee /Getty Images
All three are working with a QAnon influencer who says their victories will bring about ‘regime change’

Jerone Davison, a former NFL player mounting a long-shot bid for Congress in Arizona, is certain that federal law enforcement is responsible for children being murdered in mass school shootings, like the one that left 19 fourth-graders and two teachers dead in Texas in May.
“The FBI is not a friend of this country,” Davison said on a conservative talk show last month. “All these school shootings, the FBI had prior knowledge to what was going on.”
And Davison is equally sure that the FBI set up a Chandler man named Austin Steinbart.
Steinbart is a QAnon celebrity, known in the conspiracy theory community as “Baby Q.” Many of his supporters believe him to be the mythical Q that for years posted cryptic messages on an obscure online message board. He has told his followers that his future self is sending messages back in time so that present-day Steinbart can reveal the truth.
He also happens to be Davison’s campaign manager.
Davison is one of three Arizona candidates this year with close ties to Steinbart, all of whom are openly embracing QAnon.
