U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene Endorses Robby Starbuck for Tennessee’s Fifth Congressional Seat


U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA-14) has endorsed Robby Starbuck in the race for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District.

This comes after President Trump’s strong encouragement and offered endorsement for the potential candidacy of former State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagus.

In a post on GETTR, Rep. Greene said:

The America First agenda can only become a reality if I have allies in Congress.

That’s why I’m endorsing Robby Starbuck in Tennessee’s 5th Congressional district.

America is at a tipping point because of the Democrat America Last agenda.

Skyrocketing inflation. Supply chain crisis. Empty shelves. High gas prices. Invasion at our southern border.

We cannot Save America and Stop Communism with weak, timid RINO Republicans who refuse to fight back.

Impeaching Joe Biden. Firing Dr. Fauci. Stopping the economy-crushing Green New Deal. Breaking up Big Tech. Defeating the Democrats.

Robby will put People over Politicians and stand up to the Communist Democrats and DC establishment swamp.

Robby Starbuck is what Congress needs & he has my complete endorsement!

This endorsement and others, along with the sentiment that arose after President Trump’s statement on the potential Morgan Ortagus candidacy, points a schism in the MAGA movement on this campaign.

President Trump said of Ortagus, “I am told that very strong and impressive Morgan Ortagus is exploring a run from Congress in Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District. I couldn’t be happier because she’s an absolute warrior for America First and MAGA!”

“Morgan Ortagus will have my Complete and Total Endorsement if she decides to run,”

Robby Starbuck, Quincy McKnight, and Natisha Brooks are the publicly announced candidates for the seat, while Morgan Ortagus has not yet officially made her plans known.

Other potential candidates include Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles, former Tennessee Speaker of the House Beth Harwell, and retired Tennessee National Guard Brigadier General Kurt Winstead.

The deadline to turn in qualifying petitions for this race is Thursday, April 7 at noon. A candidate can begin their petitions process on February 7, 2022.

    So what does Greene now about Tennessee politics? She can keep her opinions directed at the many problems in Georgia.

      I dunno. I’d love to have him as Governor first. With all the influx of left coasters and blue state refugees, I worry about our fiscal status and the potential poison pouring into our state. I find our current Gov. Lee a bit wishy-washy. Good… but could be better. Anyway, I’d support Ogles for any office!

    Good Grief!!!!! An open seat and a flutter of No Record candidates come snowing down on us accompanied by endorsements from far-away places lamenting about the problems of the world but pointing to no earthly reason why conservatives should have any confidence in how the endorsee will vote once he/she gets to Congress. Sorry Marjorie, Donald, Rand, et al no reason in the world to go there when the likes of home-town boy Andy Ogles might still run. Young, articulate, attractive and as solid a right-wing politician as you can find. Come-on Andy give it a go!
