Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk appears to have reversed the suspension of Mark Finchem, the Republican candidate for the seat of Secretary of State in Arizona. The account was reinstated within one hour after Musk said he would take a look into the matter.

After the account was suspended, Finchem sent an email to his supporters urging them to start a pressure campaign to get Musk to reinstate his account.

“Twitter has blocked my account from speaking truth with one week left until the election. They are trying to put their thumb on the scales of this election. Tag Elon Musk and tell him to unban me right now. I am the Secretary of State nominee in a swing state running against the criminal Soros-funded candidate,” he wrote in the email.

Lawyer Jenna Ellis, who has close ties to President Trump, posted a screenshot of the email, and tagged Musk, saying the suspension “shouldn’t happen before the election!”

Musk responded, “Looking into it.”

When his account was reinstated, Finchem thanked Musk and those who spread the news of the suspension.

“We are back! Thank you for stopping the commie who suspended me from Twitter a week before the election. Twitter is much better with you at the helm. Thank you.”

It is unclear why Twitter suspended the account in the first place.
