The Insurrection Wing

JR Majewski sits in an office in a suit and tie and gives a thumbs up to the camera. An American flag and framed photos adorn the walls behind him.

J.R. Majewski was in Washington D.C. the day of the Capitol insurrection, hoping to see millions of U.S. votes thrown out to overturn the presidential election of Joe Biden. Now he wants your vote, at least if you live in Ohio between Cleveland and Toledo.

Majewski has also dabbled in the baseless QAnon conspiracy but redistricting means he may have a chance to unseat the longest-serving woman in Congress, Democrat Marcy Kaptur. The partisan redrawing of election maps also means there’s more Majewskis out there. People who would have been fringe candidates in the past now have a chance to gain power at the polls.
