Two right-wing activists Republican state treasurer Josh Mandel defended this summer against labeling by an anti-hate group have launched a super pac backing his bid for U.S. Senate.

Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec are the founders of the pac.  Both promote the conspiracy theory dubbed "pizzagate," which suggested Hillary Clinton was running a pedophile ring out of a Washington D.C.-area  pizzeria. The pac is prohibited from coordinating with Mandel's campaign, but can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money on his behalf.
