US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene easily defeated five Republican challengers in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District primary Tuesday.
During her victory speech Tuesday night, Greene called for the impeachment of Democrat President Joe Biden and said his election was the product of "fraudulent electoral votes."
Greene also described Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell as one of the body's "failed leaders."
She added, "Sending me back to Washington will send a message to the bloodsucking establishment: It is we who will set the policy agenda for the next decade and not them. We’re going to start speaking the truth more forcefully and more loudly than ever before."
In November’s general election, Greene will face the winner of a three-way Democratic primary in the district where Republicans have the advantage. The district of northwest Georgia spans from metro Atlanta to the state line at Chattanooga, Tennessee, boundaries that were redrawn during redistricting last year.
The three Democrats competing to challenge Greene in November include, Army veteran Marcus Flowers, small business owner Hollie McCormack and former Rome city commissioner Wendy Davis.
Greene remained on the primary ballot after a failed effort to disqualify her. Opponents argued that first term Congresswoman engaged in an insurrection by allegedly encouraging the rioters on Jan. 6, 2021. The claims were dismissed by Georgia’s secretary of state and an administrative law judge.
Greene faced a slate of Republican primary challengers including, Jennifer Strahan, founder of a suburban Atlanta health care advisory firm who said in a campaign ad, "Our current U.S. representative isn’t doing her job."
In 2021, Greene was stripped of her committee assignments by House Democrats who accused her of spreading conspiracies and antisemitism.
Greene’s other Republican opponents included, retired physician Charles Lutin, engineer James Haygood, Marine Corps veteran Seth Synstelien and logistics executive Eric Cunningham.
Despite the controversy surrounding her, Greene was still popular with donors. According to the Federal Election Commission, Greene raised more than $9 million for her reelection campaign, which placed her among the year’s top fundraisers in Congress.
