Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Caitlyn Jenner went back and forth on Twitter following the gubernatorial candidate’s appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
“GOP support and consultants working to elect Jenner for Governor in CA are playing the left’s stupid identity politics game. A game that sells out our faith, family, and freedoms,” Greene tweeted on Monday.
She added, “Stop promoting this man in a dress and NEVER-Trumper. CA Patriots worked too hard and deserve better.”

Jenner fired back, “Tough talk coming from someone who backed down to the woke mob and settled out of court with a Twitter troll.”
She continued, “Now your money is being used to take guns away from law abiding Americans.”
Jenner, a Republican, announced in April she is running for governor of California, as IJR previously reported.
“I’m in! California is worth fighting for,” Jenner said in a statement, adding, “For the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”
She continued, “I am a proven winner and the only outsider who can put an end to Gavin Newsom’s disastrous time as governor.”
Jenner also said she “can’t wait to lead, to help and most importantly to disrupt the status quo once again.”
The former Olympic decathlete and reality TV star was harassed and faced transphobic rhetoric during her time at CPAC, as Business Insider reports.
During her first press conference since announcing her candidacy, Jenner said, “I am a private citizen of the state of California, I have every right in the world to be able to run for this office and I am on the Republican side. Obviously, I’m on the Republican side.”
She added, “But don’t put me in this box, like if you’re in this box of ‘you’re a Republican, you have to think this way.’”
