Perkins told OPB in a lengthy interview that she regretted allowing her campaign consultants to take down a video she posted on primary election-night Tuesday in which she praised QAnon and said, “I stand with Q and the team.”

“Am I bummed I took it down?” said Perkins, a semi-retired insurance agent from Albany, Oregon.  “Yeah, I am really bummed.  But I also hired a consultant whose job it is to ‘protect me.’”
