Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga) is still weighing a potential Senate run in Georgia though she appears to have her sights set on a higher office.
The controversial congresswoman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she hasn’t “made up her mind” about whether she will run for Senate in 2026.
“I have a lot of things to think about,” she added. “Am I going to be a part of President Trump’s Cabinet if he wins? Is it possible that I’ll be VP?”
Greene added she would “very, very heavily” consider being Trump’s running mate if he offers the position.
Greene has been angling to be Trump’s VP pick for months even though the former president encouraged her to run for Senate earlier this year.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene, you happen to be here. Would you like to run for the Senate? I will fight like hell for you, I tell you,” Trump said during a Texas rally in March.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is also rumored to be considering a run for the Senate in 2026. Kemp has criticized Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia.
On Tuesday Kemp defended the integrity of Georgia’s election process after Trump said he plans to present new evidence next week showing that the 2020 election was stolen in response to being indicted for trying to overturn the results of the Georgia election.
Greene later criticized Kemp for not siding with Trump.
“His message should have been against this, not arguing with President Trump about the election and making it about his own ego and pride over Georgia’s election,” Greene said. “That’s a bad statement, and I was very upset over it.”
The candidate who wins the GOP senate primary in 2026 will face incumbent Sen. Jon Ossoff (D) if he decides to seek re-election. Republicans need to win this seat of they are to retake their majority in the senate.
