The outspoken conservative congresswoman was a high-profile target for Democrats, who went so far as to sue to have her removed from the ballot. The suit, which ultimately failed, alleged Taylor-Greene could not run for reelection due to the Constitution’s Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause.” The whole thing was tied to the mostly-peaceful January 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol.
Taylor-Greene’s Democrat opponent, Marcus Flowers, raised an astonishing $15 million to defeat her. Newsweek reports that $15 million is “more than any congressional candidate across the entire country.”
Despite all that, come Election Eve, even the left-wing polling and prediction site FiveThirtyEight said the 48-year-old representative’s chances of winning were 99 out of 100.
