Washington (CNN)Top Republicans, including President Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, are embracing their party's nominee for a House seat in Georgia, despite her history of racist and anti-Semitic remarks and promotion of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory.

"We look forward to Georgians Andrew Clyde and Marjorie Taylor Greene - and all of our Republican candidates across the country - winning in November so that we can enact policies to renew the American dream, restore our way of life, and rebuild the greatest economy in the world," the statement said, adding, "It's clear that the Democrat Party does not share those goals," and specifically criticizing former Vice President Joe Biden, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

But the National Republican Congressional Committee refused to say when asked if it endorsed Greene's candidacy after she won the GOP nomination, instead attacking a Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota.
