Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., will be allowed to run for reelection after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger decided to allow the congresswoman to remain on the November ballot.

The victory comes after a national election and campaign finance reform group, Free Speech for People, issued a complaint against Greene alleging she violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by engaging in insurrection on Jan. 6, as previously reported.

Despite the group’s efforts, state Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot said Friday that the group “failed to prove their case by a preponderance of the evidence” and ruled that the congresswoman is qualified to seek reelection.

However, it was left to Raffensperger to finalize the decision.

“Therefore, IT IS HEREBY DECIDED that Respondent MARJORIE TAYLORGREENE is QUALIFIED to be a candidate for the office of United States Representative for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District,” Raffensperger announced Friday.
