Marjorie Taylor Greene to Face Primary Challenger?


Investigative journalist and former congressional candidate Laura Loomer floated the idea of moving to Georgia to challenge Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in the GOP primary.

“Should I move one state over to Georgia and Primary professional conwoman @RepMTG who exists for the sake of doing @SpeakerMcCarthy’s bidding?” Loomer tweeted with a poll.

“I mean I think it’s only fair. She took my job. So I should have a shot at taking her job too. Am I right? I think we need a real America First Rep in Congress. And she ain’t it,” Loomer added.

Donald Trump reportedly asked his aides in April to hire Loomer, but Greene publicly stated her opposition to hiring the former congressional candidate.

Greene called her “mentally unstable” and a “documented liar.”

Newsweek reported:

After a report from The New York Times surfaced in early April that Trump had asked his aides to hire Loomer, a failed two-time Republican congressional candidate in Florida, Greene publicly opposed the idea, calling Loomer “mentally unstable” and promising to “make sure [Trump] knows” to “never hire” her.

Hours later, the Times reported that Trump had changed his mind about hiring Loomer, possibly due to pushback from individuals like Greene, who remains close to the former president. At the time, Loomer lashed out over Twitter at those who “smear me with lies in an effort to sabotage one of President Trump’s biggest loyalists who has only helped his campaign.”

After the House’s vote to pass the debt ceiling deal, Steve Bannon voiced support for a primary challenge to Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Bannon said Greene and Rep. Jim Jordan should “should both face primary challenges from real MAGA” for voting for the bill.
