The outspoken and often controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) is once again the Republican nominee for Georgia’s 14th district.

“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,” Greene said. “We’re going to start speaking the truth more forcefully and more loudly than ever before.”

Greene also took a jab at the Democratic party, thanking them for her win.

“Where would we be without them showing American people exactly the kind of people they are on a daily basis?” the congresswoman said in her victory speech after the results were in on Tuesday night. “Sometimes, they make my job too easy. All I need to do is draw attention to their words and their actions. Actually their words and their actions … well, you can’t miss them, right?”

Five Georgia voters had tried to remove Greene from the race arguing that the congresswoman played a significant role in the events of January 6, violating a little-known part of the 14th Amendment which blocks anyone who had been involved in an insurrection from running for office.

Greene will face off against Democratic nominee Marcus Flowers in the general election in November to represent Georgia’s 14th District which has a large Republican majority.
