The incendiary representative has long been a darling of the far right, but has recently made inroads into the establishment wing of the Republican Party.

US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wants to be former US President Donald Trump’s running mate in 2024, according to people who have spoken to her about her plans.

“She’s not a shrinking violet, she’s ambitious — she’s not shy about it, nor should she be,” former Trump aide Steve Bannon said. on his War Room podcast. “She sees herself on Trump’s VP shortlist.”

Another source who spoke on condition of anonymity to NBC News told the outlet that “Greene’s whole vision is to be vice president.”

The source further adds that Greene has attempted to reposition herself as someone who can work with both the establishment and far-right wings of the Republican Party. The source says these moves were made to make her more touchable as a running mate.

Greene surprised many when she backed Kevin McCarthy’s bid to become House Speaker, as most expected her to side with the House Freedom Caucus, which had tried to block the presidency of McCarthy.

After McCarthy was elected, he appointed Greene to two high-level legislative committee assignments: Homeland Security and Oversight and Accountability. The second will allow him to participate in the investigations of the Biden administration. She has also been appointed to the committee that will investigate the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump has fallen out with his former running mate and Vice President Mike Pence after Pence refused to go along with Trump’s attempts to cancel the 2020 presidential election. Trump, who announced his third presidential bid in November, did not hasn’t hinted who he’s leaning towards as a running mate if he gets the nomination, but Pence hasn’t been thought to be among the potential nominees.

Trump remains the frontrunner in national GOP polls, but Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been gaining momentum lately.

Along with Greene’s referrals, she proved to be an effective fundraiser. During the 2022 midterm election cycle, Greene raised just under $12.5 million, placing her in the top ten of 2,022 House candidates.

But Greene turned some of them off, even in her party, largely because of statements she made before running for office. Greene has shown a penchant for promoting some of the craziest conspiracy theories on the internet, including an anti-Semitic theory that space lasers, supposedly funded by the Rothschilds, started California wildfires in 2018.

She also promoted the so-called “QAnon” conspiracy theory that Democratic politicians are covering up and participating in a global pedophile ring.

Earlier this month, Greene admitted she had been “sucked” into conspiracies by things she read on the internet, and had not campaigned on those ideas.

Also in 2018, before running for office, Greene said in a Facebook* post that Rep. Nancy Pelosi was guilty of treason and noted that treason is “punishable by death.” Critics said the post incited violence against the former House speaker.

Because of these and other comments, the House voted to remove Greene from committee assignments in 2021. Eleven Republicans joined every House Democrat in voting to censure Greene. McCarthy, who at the time was the House Minority Leader, fought against holding the vote and voted in favor of Greene.

This may have been the start of a political alliance between McCarthy and Greene.
