"Ron Watkins, the former 8chan administrator widely rumored to have seeded the QAnon conspiracy theory, has said that he intends to run for a congressional seat in Arizona.

In a video posted on his Telegram channel on Thursday, Watkins said that he had decided to "double down with God as my compass to take this fight to the swamp of Washington DC."

"I am here to formally announce my run for Congress in Arizona," he said. "Under God's authority, we will take back Congress, flip the Senate and fix the presidency."

Earlier, an email address associated with Watkins had filed a "statement of intent" with the office of the Arizona secretary of state to run for a congressional seat, Dylan Rosenblatt, a journalist for a local NPR affiliate first reported.

The filing is an essential step in running for public office, and comes ahead of the candidate seeking to secure the required number of signatures to make it onto the ballot.

Some critics, including QAnon expert Mike Rothschild, dismissed the move as a publicity stunt or fundraising bid.

In order to run for office, a candidate must reside in the state and earlier this year it was reported by NBC that Watkins lives in Japan.

Arizona's first Congressional district is currently represented by Democrat Tom O'Halleran, who has been in office since 2016, and has since defeated two Republican challengers."
