Democrat Challenger Out-raises Marjorie Taylor Greene in Georgia

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.

Actually, its more likely that outside the state PACS, et al, poured in more money. In reality, NO “outside” money should be allowed to be contributed for “in-state” offices. Its basically the same as foreign country influence money for national elections. No one from California (or Idaho) should be attempting to fund (and thereby influence) election campaigns in Georgia.

Where’s the money coming from? Outside of the state of GA, I’ll bet. Just because he’s a Vet doesn’t make him a good candidate. I’ll have to donate to MTG’s campaign.

So wtf is the reason for this article? Greene who sits in a heavily republican area basically is not going to be challenged it seems no matter how much money the dumbocrats throw in to the mix. Non story!

It doesn’t matter where the money amounts are for re-election, the American people are awake and watching what is taking place in this country. We watch as the Faux President Joe Biden does everything in his power to turn us into a Communist country completely ignoring the fact the people do not want this. What he is doing is NOT DEMOCRACY but is DICTATORSHIP. He and his Deep State team have run roughshod over America and other countries, and it is time for it to stop. We will speak at the polls with our votes and this election will show them that Americans DO NOT AGREE with them. They are the MINORITY; we are the MAJORITY. Trust the American people not the fiat money.

Soros & or Clinton foundations are most likely the places all that Dem money is coming from.

There lies the problem Money should not be the determining factor in who wins? It should be based on their values and belief in God, Country and family. Honesty and integrity is what should motivate voters

Looks like with the ruling this judge just put out the Demos – Jan 6 panel is doing
everything they can to get her disqualified for office!!! That’s a bunch of garbage.
They want to silence her anyway they can!! She’s a voice they want gone. This
panel seems to be going off the rails in all that they are pursuing as mid terms
approach they are un turning all the stones they can possibly find!! Demos all
go unchecked on everything it seems. They know they are racing against the clock!!
