New Mexico Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham called protesters at the launch of her re-election campaign “QAnon Lizard People” on Thursday.
Outside the Albuquerque Museum’s outdoor amphitheater, Grisham formally announced her pursuit of a second term. Her speech was often drowned out by protesters who, according to the Albuquerque Journal, forced the governor to cut her remarks short and end early.
“I know it’s going to be loud, and I just have to say I’m sorry that we picked the same location that the QAnon lizard people meeting was at,” Grisham said after she emerged on stage to supporters chanting “MLG.”
“In spite of that,” she continued, “I’m running for re-election for another four years.”
Grisham, who officially launched her re-election campaign, acknowledges the noise:
