A Defiant Marjorie Taylor Greene Defeats Her Critics and Triumphs in the Republican Primaries

The hotly debated GOP primary contests took place in the Peach State on Tuesday, including the race for governor (which incumbent Governor Brian Kemp won) and the Senate seat (which former President Donald Trump's endorsed Herschel Walker took in a massive landslide).

In the meantime, the 11th House District Republican primary race was announced as going to incumbent Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) by both the Decision Desk site and Fox News, along with other outlets. The New York Post reported that the incumbent Congresswoman “held 70.4% of the vote when the race was called with 44% of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.”

Fox News reported that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, a controversial Republican, was awarded the GOP nod for the seat following a primary contest with an establishment-backed businesswoman, Jennifer Strahan. Strahan was supported by the Republican Jewish Coalition and other established DC leaders, such as Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA). But it wasn't enough to help her beat the fiery, Trump-friendly Greene in her red-hot north Georgia district.

However, Greene was able to run only after overcoming legal efforts to block her right to be a candidate in the GOP primary election. Liberal activists failed to link her to the January 6, 2021, Capitol protest.

MTG will likely face Democratic Army veteran Marcus Flowers in the fall. The New York Post reported that Flowers is expected to beat two other candidates.
