How deep will mainstream Republican support be for Loomer as she takes on well-established and popular Democratic incumbent Lois Frankel in congressional District 21?
Laura Loomer has gone from social media star, too banned on most platforms to Republican candidate and now to congressional candidate after securing a win in Florida’s 21st Congressional District.
Loomer is banned by the likes of Twitter, CPAC, GoFundMe, Venmo, MGM Resorts, PayPal, Lyft, Uber and Uber Eats.
Michael Barnett, chairman of the Palm Beach County Republican Party, says “I think she’s a great candidate, and she’ll be a great candidate for the district where President Trump lives,” said Barnett. “She’s a bulldog and a fighter like President Trump, and the base admires that in our candidates.”
Jewish, Laura Loomer was raised in Arizona by their father. She attended Barry University, in Miami Shores, Florida, from which she graduated with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism.
Loomer won her nomination with only 14,256 votes in a district with 138,295 registered Republicans. Louis Frankel, in contrast, garnered 75,504 votes to win the Aug. 18 Democratic primary.
