U.S. Representative of Georgia Taylor Marjorie Greene just made a huge statement in Georgia’s Republican Primary.
In a blowout victory, Rep. Greene defeated challenger Jennifer Strahan by gaining 70% of the vote for Georgia’s 11th Congressional District.
Greene’s huge victory was a sign that the Republican establishment no longer has control over Trump’s Republican party anymore.
In her victory speech, Greene took aim at Biden and Mitch McConnell and called the two out for being destructive to America.

The 47-year-old political lightning rod leaned in to her national notoriety to raise millions for her first reelection bid and will now run in the general election to represent the safely Republican 11th Congressional District in the Peach State.
The incumbent held 70.4% of the vote when the race was called with 44% of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.

The Associated Press got the scoop too:
U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene easily defeated five fellow Republicans on Tuesday in a primary race that showed her conservative Georgia constituents standing steadfastly beside her after a turbulent freshman term.
Greene showed no signs of mellowing in her victory speech late Tuesday. She called, as she has in the past, for the impeachment of President Joe Biden and dismissed his election as the product of “fraudulent electoral votes.” She likened pandemic mask and vaccine mandates to “medical tyranny,” and bemoaned “the cruel and illegal treatment of many nonviolent Jan. 6 protesters.”
Greene called Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell one of Congress’ “failed leaders” and said to loud applause that she’s part of a “majority who even now wants to see Hillary Clinton in jail.”
“Sending me back to Washington will send a message to the bloodsucking establishment: It is we who will set the policy agenda for the next decade and not them,” Greene said. She added: “We’re going to start speaking the truth more forcefully and more loudly than ever before.”
