Flowers' campaign video also touches on other controversies surrounding the congresswoman, including spouting 9/11 conspiracy theories and backing calls for elected officials to be executed.

"Her twisted conspiracy theories may have made her famous, but haven't done a damn thing to help the people here in our district," Flowers said.

"Now I'm running for congress because Georgians deserve better, better health care, COVID relief and real representation."

He adds: "I've witnessed firsthand the damage done by extremism, radicalism and disinformation. And I won't stand by while people in Washington take us down the same path."

"We need to bring civility back into our political discourse. She does not represent our district. People here are lovely. I mean, yeah, there's an element of extremism here in the district, but it's by far the minority," he added.

Flowers also told 11Alive News that Georgia's 14th congressional district deserves a candidate who "can sit on committees that can help the community," accusing Greene of doing none of these things.

"And I think she'll just continue to become more and more extreme as time goes on," Flowers added.
