The American Conservative: Who Is Morgan Ortagus?

Morgan Ortagus
by CARMEL RICHARDSON, The American Conservative, FEBRUARY 12, 2022- When Former President Donald Trump endorses a congressional candidate, it’s always interesting to see who cheers. In the case of Morgan Ortagus, former spokeswoman for then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and now candidate for the newly-redrawn Tennessee congressional District 5, congratulations came from Kelly Craft, the once-Bush appointee to the United Nations for U.S. engagement in Africa, and Russia hawk Ryan Tully. 

Notably missing: any native Tennesseans, save Quincy McKnight, .... Ortagus, who announced her candidacy on February 7, was already getting flack from a handful conservatives in late January after she earned the coveted Trump endorsement. After all, her wedding was officiated by the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and for the 2016 Republican primary she volunteered for none other than Jeb Bush .... moved to Nashville only one year ago. .... 

 One thing that can be said for Ortagus: She’s politically savvy. She has hired Republican campaign strategist Ward Baker ..., who was behind the successful campaign to get Bill Hagerty into the Senate in 2020 and Marsha Blackburn in 2018. (link)
