GOP Rep. Gaetz, Circulator Of Soros Conspiracy Theories, Wins Florida Seat
GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, known for peddling a conspiracy theory about billionaire liberal George Soros, held his House seat in Florida’s 1st Congressional District.
The Republican incumbent held a steady lead over Jennifer Zimmerman, with nearly 67% of the vote.
And one of the attendees at a Gaetz fundraiser over the summer was “alt-right” activist Charles C. Johnson, who wrote online last year that he did not believe six million Jews died in the Holocaust.
