Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s fundraising is overshadowed by upstart Democratic challenger

-

- Advertisment -


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was outraised in the first quarter of 2022 by an upstart Democratic challenger in her ruby ​​red Georgia district.

The far right-wing firebrand raised $1.1 million in the three months, dwarfed by an impressive $2.4 million raked in by Democrat Marcus Flowers, federal disclosure forms revealed.

Greene also spent about $300,000 more than she raised from January to March, a troubling figure for a rising GOP fundraising star.

But it’s not all doom and gloom for MTG.

She still has $3 million in cash on hand compared to $1.9 million for Flowers. And she has outraised him overall by a margin of $8.4 million to $7.1 million.

Flower, a folksy cowboy-hat-wearing Army veteran from the local town of Rome, is running as a common-sense alternative to Greene, who has been dogged by controversy during her first term in office.

MTG has been accused of accosting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) in the halls of the Capitol and defended the Jan. 6 attackers as patriotic citizens.

An opponent of measures to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, Greene recently appeared at a white nationalist political gathering where she was greeted by chants of “Putin, Putin.”

Despite catching the eye of national Democrats, Flower has little chance of beating MTG unless she is hit by some much more serious scandal.

The district, which stretches from Atlanta exurbs to the rural northwest corner of the state, is one of the most heavily Republican seats in the country. Both Greene and Trump won it by about 50% in 2020.
