exclusive: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would be willing to run nationally as vice president or president at some point in the future.
“These are things that I’m absolutely interested in, as long as I think they’re achievable and I can play a role in those roles,” Green said in an interview with Fox News Digital Friday at the Conservative Party Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Germany Dallas, Texas. “But we’ll see what happens next.”
Georgia’s first-term lawmaker has raised more than $10 million for her reelection campaign since the beginning of last year. Green isn’t just sitting on the money, however.
Instead, the congresswoman is using it to support candidates who fit her and Trump’s populist political style. In recent months, Green has backed Ohio’s JD Vance and Arizona’s Black Masters in Senate races.

“I want to see the Republican Party become the party that truly represents the American people,” she said. “I think the inner circle within the Republican Party is trying to find that identity, but I want to play a big role in helping them really realize what voters want.”
A small business owner and mother of three, Green said she was forced to seek electoral positions because Republicans on Capitol Hill ignored their conservative base.
“I’m a regular guy, I never set out to be a congressman, but I can tell you for sure that the American people want to see the elected leaders of the Republican Party really do the jobs they campaigned for and say they will, “she says. “I’m one of those Americans who are disappointed when Republicans don’t get things done like repealing Obamacare [and] cancel family planning. “

Trump has acknowledged Greene as a top ally.
