According to his latest federal filings, Democrat challenger Marcus Flowers out-raised Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in the first three months of the year, possibly spelling trouble for the Republican firebrand.
The Hill reports:
Flowers, an Army veteran and former military contractor, pulled in more than $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, dwarfing the fundraising haul of Greene, who raised less than $1.1 million in the same time span.
Flowers is still well behind Greene in overall cash on hand. The latest filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show Greene with more than $3 million in the bank, while Flowers has about $1.9 million.
Overall, Greene has raised about $8.4 million for her reelection bid this year, though Flowers isn’t too far behind. He has raked in about $7.1 million for his campaign so far.
While the first-term representative has been at the center of multiple controversies since taking office last year, Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, which sits in the northwestern corner of the state, is heavily Republican. Both Greene and former President Trump carried it in 2020 by nearly 50-point margins.
Flowers is facing off against two other candidates for the Democrat nomination, Holly McCormack and Wendy Davis.
