Marjorie Taylor Greene has won the Republican primary nomination for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District.
Greene is a businesswoman who has supported QAnon – the far-right conspiracy theory group – and has posted racist comments and videos.
Greene won Tuesday even though her own party of Republicans was against her for posting campaign videos where she spoke about “Islamic invasion” and referred to Black and Latino men as members of “gangs and drug dealing.”
“WE WON! Thank you for your support! Save America. Stop Socialism,” Greene tweeted Tuesday, followed by a video showing her victory party with a room full of people without masks.
“So the Republican establishment was against me. The DC swamp has been against me. And the lying fake news media hates my guts,” she said in her victory speech. “Yep, it’s a badge of honor.”
Greene is a Trump supporter, as well as a pro-gun, pro-border wall, and anti-abortion supporter.
Trump even congratulated her in a Tweet on Wednesday: “Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent. Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up – a real WINNER!”
