They say you are the company you keep. For AZ-01 candidate Eli Crane, apparently that company is Nazi sympathizers, white supremacists, and people who stormed the U.S. Capitol during the deadly January 6 insurrection.
Crane will take the stage at tomorrow's "Justice for J6 Rally" at the Arizona State Capitol to support so-called "political prisoners" of the January 6 insurrection.
Reminder: the deadly Capitol riot left five people dead - including members of law enforcement - and hundreds more injured.
Other speakers include a Nazi sympathizer who called Adolf Hitler a "complicated historical figure" and an insurrectionist facing federal charges for storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, both of whom are members of a white supremacist community. Election conspiracy promoter Rep. Mark Finchem will also speak at the event.
DCCC Spokesperson Johanna Warshaw
"Eli Crane has just shown us exactly who he is: a far-right, extremist candidate who has no problem joining white supremacists and fringe conspiracy theorists in support of those who executed a deadly attack on our nation's Capitol. He couldn't be more out of step with the people of Arizona - and the entire country."
