LOOMER CRUSHES FRANKEL IN FUNDRAISING AND POSTS BEST
QUARTERLY NUMBERS WHILE SHIFTING FOCUS TO MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS
(Palm Beach, Florida)
Laura Loomer, Republican candidate for Congress in Florida’s 21st
District, announced that her campaign has raised $204,786 in the 1ST
Quarter of 2020, outraising Democrat Incumbent Lois Frankel and her Republican
opponents COMBINED for a third time.
Frankel raised only $82,876.
Special interest PAC’s represented 72% of Frankel’s 1st
On March 9th, Loomer’s campaign was the first
federal campaign in the nation to temporarily halt events and public activities
like door knocking due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Loomer instructed volunteers and staff to
assist with community needs such as blood drives and mask making for first
Fundraising was deprioritized by the campaign as well in
order to shift focus to community assistance.
Despite the shift, Loomer’s campaign reported the largest fundraising
total since starting the race for Florida’s 21st Congressional seat.
During this cycle to date, 10,790 donations have been
received by the campaign from all 50 states with Florida residents being the
top contributors. The average
contribution was $52 proving widespread support among the voting public.
Loomer stated, “We’re doing all that we can to assist
residents in the 21st District.
Palm Beach County is now Florida’s top COVID-19 ‘hot spot’ and we must
be vigilant and responsible for ourselves and each other if we are to expedite
our recovery and return to normalcy. While
Congresswoman Frankel works to obstruct their efforts, I am confident that
under President Trump and Governor DeSantis’s leadership this will happen
sooner rather than later. To assist in
these efforts, I will continue to divert campaign resources, staff, volunteers
and activities to help all who are in need.”
Karen Giorno, President Trump’s 2016 Florida State Director
and chief strategist for the Loomer campaign commented, “I don’t know how Lois
Frankel is spending her time at home, but in my career, I’ve never seen a
challenger outraise a four-term incumbent by such a massive margin. Frankel is sitting back, relying on checks
from special interests and doing absolutely nothing to prove community support
in our district. It’s insulting. Is Frankel even running?”
Loomer’s campaign has outraised Democrat incumbent Lois
Frankel, as well as all primary challengers combined for the third quarter in a
row, making her the undeniable Republican frontrunner despite being shut down
by Big Tech on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Paypal.
Giorno continued, “Many of our staff and contractors have agreed
to reduced compensation without even being asked out of respect for Laura’s
leadership as well as respect for our donors who are going through tough
times. Their selflessness inspired me to
max out to the campaign with a $5,600 donation.
I am honored to be a part of this historic and important campaign.”
Loomer’s campaign has contacted supporters through phone,
text, email, Telegram, Parler and Gab over 9 million times during the election
season with campaign updates, calls-to-action and requests for donations.
Loomer closed by saying, “During these challenging times, we are reminded now more than ever that elections matter, and strong leadership is essential. My campaign is committed to winning this Congressional seat, and when I’m elected, I will always people before politics, partisanship and party.”
