Greene Considers Senate, VP Run

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) told local media that she is considering seeking one of Georgia’s senate seats or being the running mate of the eventual 2024 Republican nominee for president. The comments from a close ally of former President Donald Trump could shake up Georgia or national politics.

The Georgia Republican told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she had not made up her mind on her political future, including a possible Senate run when asked. 

She said that she had “a lot of things to think about.” 

“Am I going to be a part of President Trump’s Cabinet if he wins?” she asked. “Is it possible that I’ll be VP?”

The representative is currently facing a reelection challenge in 2024. 

In 2026, The seat of Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA) is open in the 2026 elections, which could pit Greene against current Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in the Republican primary should Kemp choose to run for the seat.

Greene has established herself as one of the most prominent members of the House of Representatives and has aligned herself closely with the former president.

The representative has also received significant attention for her efforts to impeach President Joe Biden. She has introduced several articles of impeachment against the president.

One effort from March 2021 seeks the president’s impeachment for “abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

She tied the president’s conduct to that of his son, Hunter Biden. Greene’s resolution argued that Biden allowed his son “to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept benefits from foreign nationals in exchange for favors.”

She wrote that such actions “endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government” and “threatened the integrity of the democratic system.”

The representative also introduced a resolution to expunge one of Trump’s impeachments.

Greene has also sharply criticized the decision by Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis (D) to indict Trump in relation to the aftermath of the 2020 election.
