Laura Loomer launches Florida congressional bid
Says opponent has abandoned her constituents in favor of radical special interests
PALM BEACH, Fla.—Conservative investigative journalist Laura Loomer has filed to run for Congress in Florida’s 21st congressional district. Loomer is a resident of the district.
The congressional seat is currently held by Democrat Lois Frankel, a staunch obstructionist and critic of President Donald J. Trump, and a close friend and ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Frankel, despite chairing the Democrat Congressional Women’s Caucus has refused to denounce Freshmen Democrat Reps. Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Rashida Tlaib for their anti-Semitism.
While Frankel ran unopposed in 2018, she will not have that luxury in 2020.
“My opponent cares far more about radical leftist special interests, her anti-Semitic colleagues, and protecting criminal illegal aliens from deportation than about her district and constituents here in Florida who she’s supposed to be working for, not against,” said Loomer.
Loomer is a pro-America, Jewish conservative with a strong history of supporting President Trump and Jewish causes both here in America, and abroad. Loomer frequently travels to Israel.
As a well-known conservative journalist, Loomer decided to run for Congress after being banned from nearly every social media platform for her support of President Trump, and her damning investigative exposés. She reached out to her representative Lois Frankel who offered her no help despite claiming to be a First Amendment supporter.
“Big-Tech censorship of conservatives is an issue of growing importance to Americans. Social media giants, run almost exclusively by far-left Democrat mega-donors have weaponized their platforms, data, and algorithms to tilt the dialogue in favor of Democrats in the 2020 election cycle,” said Loomer. “Tech titans’ censorship combined with the political violence incited and sustained by far-left politicians like Ilhan Omar and Maxine Waters, and carried out by Antifa, makes it clear that Republicans are under attack. I will support my Republican colleagues in passing legislation that criminalizes this behavior.”
Loomer selected a proven Republican strategist to lead her campaign team. Karen Giorno has joined the Laura Loomer for Congress Inc., campaign as the general consultant. She is working with a powerhouse steering committee of well-respected political, national security, law enforcement, and high profile Trump supporters.
Giorno was credited with winning the Florida presidential Primary in 2016 as the State Director for the Donald J. Trump for President Inc., campaign. She was elevated to the National team as a Senior Political Advisor, Chairwoman of Trump Coalitions and Director of the Women for Trump 2016 surrogate tour working with Lara Trump in the General election.
“With Laura Loomer now in the FL CD-21 race, the Republican Party’s odds of flipping a blue district increases exponentially. Loomer’s platform, presence and the way she stands up for real people is bold, brave and attractive to many Florida Republicans, Independents, first time voters, Millennials, and moderate Democrats who reject their party’s radical shift to full blown Communist-Socialist ideals. FL CD21 is Trump country, and Loomer’s national celebrity, ability to raise money, awareness and a grassroots army will make her a force to be reckoned with,” said Giorno.
