Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene blasted political opponents seeking to remove her from the ballot, claiming those on the left are seeking to steal the ability of voters to reelect her.
Greene shared the words during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday.

“They are trying to rip my name off the ballot and steal my district’s ability to reelect me and send me back to Congress,” Greene said in the interview.
“I have to go to court on Friday and actually be questioned about something I’ve never been charged with and something I was completely against,” Greene added.
Greene has also been outspoken over concerns regarding those jailed over their involvement in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The ballot comes as Greene faces both the opposition of the left and a strong primary challenge in her own state. The combination of attacks could lead to a new GOP leader for her district if successful but is unlikely to flip the conservative district.
