Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has said that she would be open to the idea of running on a national ticket either as president or vice president at some point down the line.
“Those are things I’m definitely interested in, as long as I think they’re achievable, and I can be effective in those roles,” Greene said during an interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas. “But we’ll see what happens down the road.”
Greene, who is a first term lawmaker, has raised more than $10 million for her reelection campaign. However, Greene has been using those funds for more than just reelection — to back and endorse candidates that are in line with her and former President Donald Trump.
Greene has backed Ohio’s J.D. Vance, as well as Arizona’s Blake Masters, in their Senate races within the last few months.
“I’d love to see the Republican Party being the party that truly represents the American people,” she said. “I think the inner circle inside the GOP is struggling to find that identity, but I hope to play a big role in helping them really realize what their voters want.”
Greene is a small business owner and mother of three who became involved in politics when she began to feel that conservative voices were being silenced and ignored by Republicans on Capitol Hill.
“I’m a regular person, I had no intention of ever becoming a member of Congress, but I can tell you for sure the American people want to see elected leaders in the Republican Party actually doing the job that they campaigned on and say they would do,” she said. “I was one of those Americans that felt let down when Republicans didn’t get things done like repealing ObamaCare [and] defunding Planned Parenthood.”
Trump has recognized Greene as a top ally, particularly after the Georgia lawmaker vociferously defended him during his second impeachment trial last year after the storming of the U.S. Capitol.
Greene recently overcame an attempt to crush her chances for reelection after five Democratic voters in Georgia brought a lawsuit alleging that she was ineligible as a result of the January 6 incident.
“A Georgia administrative law judge issued a decision that Green was eligible to run following claims by five voters filed through the organization Free Speech for People. The lawsuit accused the controversial Northwest Georgia Republican of engaging in insurrection. The judge found that the plaintiffs had not produced sufficient evidence to back their claims,” local news outlet WUGA reported.
“After Raffensperger adopted the judge’s decision, the group that filed the complaint on behalf of the voters vowed to appeal. Free Speech for People has filed similar challenges in Arizona and North Carolina. Greene has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the legitimacy of the law that the voters are using to try to keep her off the ballot. That suit is pending,” the outlet continued.
Greene had previously spoken out against the lawsuit, as the Democrats had brought the suit to a lower judge, who had also rejected it.
“This is the same evil playbook the dishonest Communist Democrats use against President Trump and his family. Now they are using it on me, because they know I’m effective and will not bow to the DC machine,” Greene said.
“As I’ve said many times before, I’m vehemently opposed to all forms of political violence,” she said. “I’ve never encouraged political violence and never will.”
