Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) tweeted Wednesday that QAnon has "no place in Congress," a day after Marjorie Taylor Greene, a vocal QAnon conspiracy theorist, won the Republican nomination in a congressional runoff election in Georgia.

Why it matters: Few, if any, Republican members of Congress have publicly condemned the far-right conspiracy, which baselessly claims that a secret cabal of sex traffickers within the "deep state" is waging a war against President Trump.

  • The conspiracy movement's influence has grown within the party in recent years. Greene is one of at least 11 GOP candidates for Congress who have openly supported or defended the QAnon movement or some of its tenets.
  • President Trump on Wednesday tweeted congratulations to Greene after her victory in Georgia's deep-red 14th district. He has retweeted QAnon accounts on numerous occasions.

What they're saying: "Qanon is a fabrication. This “insider” has predicted so much incorrectly (but people don’t remember PAST predictions) so now has switched to vague generalities." Kirzinger tweeted.

  • "Could be Russian propaganda or a basement dweller. Regardless, no place in Congress for these conspiracies."

Trump campaign official Matt Wolking responded to Kinzinger on Wednesday afternoon, tweeting: "When will Rep. Kinzinger condemn the Steele Dossier fabrications and conspiracy theories pushed by Democrats? That actually WAS Russian propaganda."

The 2020 general election — thus far — has ushered in a series of landmark wins across the U.S.

The state of play: Tuesday night's results, now rolling into Wednesday, highlight America's shifting political landscape.

Hill votes will make global waves

This epic week for President Biden on Capitol Hill is even bigger than his domestic agenda.

Why it matters: Biden has anchored his entire strategy for foreign affairs on the notion that "America is back." What that means in practice is that Biden needs to prove democracy works to rally America’s liberal allies against rising authoritarians.

BERLIN — The first exit poll from Sunday's German elections showed the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) and the center-right Christian Democrats (CDU) in a dead heat at 25%, leaving the race to succeed Angela Merkel too close to call.

The state of play: A second exit poll showed the SPD narrowly ahead. That's the one televisions displayed at SPD headquarters in Berlin, where the room erupted into cheers. Official results will roll in throughout the evening.
