Marcus Flowers, a Democrat, an Army veteran, and former military contractor who is vying for the nomination to take on Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in 2022, has outraised Greene in the first three months of the year, The Hill reports.
Flowers raised more than $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, beating out Greene who raised less than $1.1 million during the same period. While Flowers is still behind in overall cash raised, he’s gaining ground on Greene, who has has raised about $8.4 million for her reelection bid this year. Flowers has raised about $7.1 million for his campaign overall.
From The Hill:
While the first-term representative has been at the center of multiple controversies since taking office last year, Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, which sits in the northwestern corner of the state, is heavily Republican. Both Greene and former President Trump carried it in 2020 by nearly 50-point margins.
Flowers also isn’t the only one seeking the Democratic nomination to take on Greene this fall. He’s facing off against two other candidates, Holly McCormack and Wendy Davis, in a May primary.
Flowers is currently ahead of both of his primary rivals when it comes to cash on hand.
