Rioter defeated in W Va
Derrick Evans, a Jan. 6 rioter who admitted in court that he committed a felony crime against police officers when he stormed the Capitol while yelling "Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!," lost a Republican primary race against Rep. Carol Miller in West Virginia, NBC News projects.

Evans pleaded guilty to a felony count of obstructing or impeding officers during a civil disorder and was sentenced to three months in prison in June 2022. Evans struck an apologetic tone after admitting under oath in court that he had, in fact, knowingly committed a felony crime on Jan. 6, but has since rebranded himself as a "political prisoner" and spread conspiracy theories about the attack in which he took part.

Footage that Evans live-streamed online on Jan. 6, which was later presented as evidence during his sentencing, proved to be the most damning evidence against him. It highlighted him storming the Capitol while bragging in the third person, as well as his thoughts and knowledge that his conduct was unlawful.
