Democrats are attacking Arizona secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem over his ties to the QAnon conspiracy theory movement in a new TV ad that is part of unprecedented spending on races to oversee state elections. 

The ad, which starts airing Tuesday, says Finchem is a “supporter of QAnon,” a reference to the conspiracy theory that falsely claims there is a shadowy cabal of Satan-worshipping elites running the country.
