J.R. Majewski shared pro-QAnon material online. Now, he’s running for Congress

CNN  — 

J.R. Majewski, the Air Force veteran who won the GOP primary for Ohio’s new 9th Congressional District, was a January 6 rally participant and has repeatedly shared pro-QAnon material – including a video showing him painting his lawn to say Trump 2020 with “Q” replacing the zeros.

Majewski emerged victorious in Tuesday’s crowded Republican primary and will face off against long-serving Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur in the newly drawn district this November.

Before running for Congress, Majewski was best known as the Trump supporter who painted his front lawn into a 19,000-square-foot Trump 2020 sign. He later appeared in the MAGA rapper Forgiato Blow’s song “Let’s Go Brandon Save America,” by rapping one verse decrying “woke” politics after he launched his campaign.

Majewski was deployed in the Middle East in the early 2000s during Operation Enduring Freedom, according to his campaign website. He currently works in the nuclear energy industry.

CNN’s KFile reviewed since-deleted and public tweets that show Majewski with a group of people who attended the January 6, 2021, “Stop the Steal” rally throughout the day in various places outside the Capitol – including a video in which a member of the group leads them in repeating the slogan of QAnon. The camera moves past Majewski in the crowd just before the slogan is repeated, so he is not visible as other members in the group are seen saying the slogan. Majewski has denied being a QAnon follower.

Majewski and the man who initally shouted the slogan appear to have briefly hosted a YouTube show together called “EarCandy.” It appeared on Majewski’s YouTube channel before being removed. The same channel now appears to represent his campaign.

“Where we go one, we go all,” the group said, repeating the catchphrase in QAnon mythology.

Followers of the tentpole QAnon conspiracy theory believe there is a “deep state” within the US government that is controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles. According to the theory, the cabal is largely run by Democratic politicians and liberal celebrities who work to traffic children – and former President Donald Trump is trying to take them down with the help of QAnon “patriots.” Their work will come to fruition on a day known as the “Storm,” when thousands of people will be arrested and face military tribunals and mass executions for their alleged crimes.

Majewksi posted a photo in a since-deleted tweet that shows him and at least two attendees of the group with their heads photoshopped on the Founding Fathers with the caption, “It’s going down on 1/6.” One picture, posted by Majewski and later deleted, shows him raising his fist in a crowd in front of the Capitol, saying he had gone there to “protest peacefully” and left “when it got ugly.”

Majewski did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.

In April 2021, Majewski denied supporting QAnon in an interview with the Toledo Blade, saying, “I’ve never read any QAnon drop — what they call the ‘Q-Drop.” A “Q-drop” refers to messages posted by the anonymous “Q” who originally fed the conspiracy theory.

But a CNN KFile review of Majewski’s tweets shows that despite claiming not to follow Q’s updates, Majewski engaged with QAnon hashtags, memes and rhetoric frequently online prior to this interview. Between July 2020 and January 2021 on his now-deleted personal Twitter account, Majewski tweeted the QAnon hashtag #WWG1WGA – which stands for “Where we go o
