May 24—U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Rome, and U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Florida, will bring their America First tour to Dalton Thursday at the Dalton Convention Center, according to a post on Greene's website.

Those who wish to attend can register for up to two seats first come, first served at events.americafirstrallytour.com/events/america-first-rally-tour-in-dalton-georgia. Doors will open at 5 p.m. The event is at 6:30.

Greene represents Whitfield and Murray counties.

The Hill, which covers national politics, quotes Gaetz as saying their tour, which has already featured stops in Florida and Arizona, is an effort to "rally the 74 million Americans that voted for President Trump in the last election and highlight the destructive failings of the radical left and their puppet in the White House, Joe Biden."

The Hill also reports the two have formed a political action committee, Put America First.

The Associated Press has reported that "federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz ... paid underage girls and escorts or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, according to two people familiar with the matter. Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure government jobs for some of the women, the people said. They are also scrutinizing Gaetz's connections to the medical marijuana sector, including whether his associates sought to influence legislation Gaetz sponsored.

"The people had knowledge of the investigation but were not allowed to publicly discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity."

Gaetz has denied that he has done anything wrong.
