Marjorie Taylor Greene to face primary challenge from businesswoman Jennifer Strahan

Georgia businesswoman Jennifer Strahan announced that she will run a primary campaign against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday, kicking off what is likely to be one of many closely-watched races between the extra-Trumpy wing of the GOP and more orthodox candidates. 

“I believe that there’s a lot of people who are ready for a serious representative,” Strahan said in an interview, taking a shot at Greene, R-Ga. “We have a lot of serious issues going on in our country right now. And we need someone who’s willing to take the fight to Pelosi, to Democrats. And the only way to do that is to be in committees.” 

Since assuming office, Greene has come under fire for her past promotion of conspiracy theories – including QAnon, which she’s disavowed – bombastic rhetoric, and her caustic social media history. Democrats stripped Greene of all of her committee assignments earlier this year over the controversies. 

Strahan is a founder of a health care consulting firm and presents herself as a political outsider. Strahan has also held several other positions in the health care industry, including with the Atlanta WellStar Health System. She said that business experience will help her be a more effective representative.
