Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene won her primary in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District on Tuesday night.

The firebrand lawmaker triumphed in her first re-election bid, nabbing over 70 percent of the vote with only over half the ballots counted.

While her divisive style has earned her denouncement from Democrats and a myriad of national headlines, it seems that Donald Trump’s all-important endorsement prevailed with Greene’s constituents.

“My enemies on both the Left and the Right will never admit it out loud, but I’ve become one of the most effective members in Congress for the Republican Party,” Green bragged in her election night victory address.

The former President had hailed Greene as a “warrior” in his initial endorsement and seemed with her many times since leaving office, including most recently at the Mar-a-Lago premiere of far-Right activist Dinesh D’Souza’s new film 2000 Mules.

In the meantime, Trump scored another Peach State victory in Senate GOP primary candidate Herschel Walker. The former football star has a personal friendship with the ex-president that goes back decades.

Walker’s candidacy was originally met with concern by establishment Republicans - specifically about his self-admitted dissociative identity disorder and past accusations of domestic abuse.

Yet even Trump’s rival, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, grew to back Walker after considering him the most electable candidate.

Walker will now continue to face Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock in November’s midterm election.

Greene was up against a crowded field of five GOP primary challengers seeking to take her place in Georgia’s heavily rural 14th Congressional District.

The most formidable was healthcare executive Jennifer Strahan, whose no-nonsense Conservative approach earned her endorsements from GOP groups in the state and a campaign appearance from sitting Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, one of Greene’s fellow Congressional Republicans.

Though Strahan began trailing Greene early in the surveys, despite bringing in an impressive amount of outside attention to her campaign. Only over two hours after polls closed, the businesswoman was hovering at 15 percent.

In her Tuesday night victory address, Greene called President Joe Biden’s election “fraudulent” and vowed to go on and “fight in every way I can to stop the Democrats’ Communist agenda.”

“I’ve hit a few roadblocks on the way - perhaps because the Washington elites realized I would always put you, the voters, first,” Greene announced.

She stated, “Their fear makes us powerful. Sending me back to Washington will send a message to the blood-sucking establishment: It is we who will set the political agenda for the next decade, and not them.”

That line, as well as bragging regarding introducing bills to impeach Biden and fire Dr. Anthony Fauci, attracted excited applause.

The Peach State shattered early voting records for a primary election, with over 850,000 already cast, according to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office.
