“The victory, which was largely expected, is seen as a win for the most Trump-aligned faction of the GOP”
When it comes to triggering liberals, few people can upstage Trump. One such person is Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Last night, Greene successfully fought off five challengers in the primary race to represent Georgia’s 14th Congressional district.
It’s pretty impressive, considering what Greene has been through.
Democrats tried to remove Greene from the ballot, using January 6th as justification.
Axios reported in April:
Challenge to Marjorie Taylor Greene’s candidacy can go ahead, judge rules
A group of Georgia voters can proceed with their case against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) that seeks to disqualify her from congressional office over her alleged involvement in the U.S. Capitol riot, a judge ruled Monday.
Why it matters: Trump loyalist Greene, who denies any wrongdoing, was seeking a temporary injunction against the lawsuit, arguing that the case was not likely to be resolved before Georgia’s primary elections in May, per Reuters.
– The ruling means a hearing in the case, brought by liberal groups represented by Free Speech for People, will go ahead as scheduled on Friday morning before a Georgia state judge.
– Similar constitutional challenges pending against other Republican officials rely on a 14th Amendment provision, known as the “Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause,” that was adopted after the Civil War to prevent members of the Confederacy from holding office.
This was a blatant attempt by Democrats, with the full support of the media, to take Greene out of the race.
And now we know why the Democrats did it. They knew she would win the primary, which she just did.
The Hill reports:
Greene easily wins Georgia GOP primary
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was projected to win the Republican primary in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District on Tuesday, fending off five GOP challengers.
ABC News, CNN and NBC News both called the race before 9 p.m. ET.
The victory, which was largely expected, is seen as a win for the most Trump-aligned faction of the GOP. Former President Trump endorsed Greene last month.
Here’s a video of Greene commenting on her primary win:
She is probably going to be reelected in November.
Does anyone want to bet against her?
