Marjorie Taylor Greene May Not Run for Reelection: Report

Far-right GOP representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has pulled off two decisive victories in Georgia’s 14th District, is contemplating the possibility of not seeking re-election to her congressional seat in the upcoming fall. Nonetheless, her departure from politics is not a definite outcome.

In response to remarks made by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, who is reportedly considering a U.S. Senate run in 2026, where he criticized Donald Trump’s baseless claims of winning Georgia in 2020, Greene has expressed her willingness to potentially challenge Kemp in a Republican primary. This course of action assumes that Trump doesn’t choose her as his running mate after securing the Republican presidential nomination, given that Greene is a staunch ally of the former president.

“I haven’t made up my mind whether I will do that or not,” she said about a possible Senate run, according to s story published Tuesday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I have a lot of things to think about. Am I going to be a part of President Trump’s Cabinet if he wins? Is it possible that I’ll be VP?”

The latter prospect is indeed plausible. Earlier this year, Greene distanced herself from the far-right Freedom Caucus to back the election of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, endorsed by Trump. This alignment with the former president has led to speculation from sources like former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, suggesting that Greene is a strong contender for Trump’s choice of a running mate.

Bannon commented on his War Room podcast, “She’s not one to shy away—she possesses ambition, and rightly so. She envisions herself as a prominent candidate for Trump’s potential VP selection.”

While Greene initially refuted the idea of joining Trump on the Republican ticket in 2024, she has since altered her stance. She now acknowledges that being Trump’s running mate would be a “privileged” opportunity and something she would give serious thought to.

Nonetheless, this scenario is not guaranteed. Apart from Greene, other Republicans such as New York Representative Elise Stefanik, Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (unsuccessful), and Florida Representative Byron Donalds—another prominent Trump ally and an emerging star in the GOP—are viewed as leading contenders. Tim Scott, a 2024 presidential hopeful and South Carolina Senator who has largely remained unscathed from Trump’s critical attacks on his GOP rivals, is also a potential contender.

As Trump stated during a Florida event in February, “A lot of people are right now auditioning.” Furthermore, Trump may have specific designs involving Greene. During a rally in Waco, Texas, earlier in the year, as Kemp mulled over challenging Democratic Senator Jon Ossoff in 2026, Trump publicly encouraged Greene to run for Senate. He indicated that she could present a strong challenge in Georgia, a state historically characterized by intense political competition.

Addressing Greene from the stage in March, Trump asserted, “Would you like to run for the Senate? I will fight like hell for you.”
