President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump knocked on doors in Florida on Tuesday for Laura Loomer, these volunteers are knocking doors, making calls, and training new volunteers - all to spread the President’s record of success with their fellow Floridians.
Loomer raised a massive $1.1 million for her primary campaign, the Trump campaign also used her list of campaign donors for their own fundraiser, according to Mediaite. Several Republicans have supported Ms Loomer, including Florida's Matt Gaetz, Arizona's Paul Gosar, and Mr Trump himself "Great going Laura. You have a great chance against a Pelosi puppet!," Mr Trump said soon after her primary win.
The Florida GOP and the Trump campaign have embraced Loomer's congressional bid. Her campaign director, Karen Giorno, ran Trump’s 2016 Florida operations. And her campaign is backed by a prominent Trump supporters including Alex Jones, Roger Stone, and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Far-left-wing publications and the Democratic Propaganda arm, posing as news outlets have hit the panic buttons with Loomer now the favorite to win in Florida’s 21st District, where the incumbent, Democrat Lois Frankel the "Pelosi Puppet", once held a healthy margin from 2013 through 2019.
Calling the Jewish Laura Loomer a Nazi, Milo washed out, Rodger a convicted criminal and Alex a conspiracy theorist. Resulting in the Loomer campaign sending out a fundraising email this week that said, “The liberal media is ON FIRE with hate over Laura Loomer and is deploying typical Alinsky tactics in their desperation to defeat her.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz and longtime GOP operative Roger Stone recently endorsed Loomer as she sought the CD 21 nod.
When Gaetz noted Loomer’s victory online, the President retweeted the message and commented “Big win Matt!”
Loomer was able to consistently raise money as well, crossing the $1 million mark by late July. While that total put her well ahead of her GOP competitors, Loomer spent big on fundraising fees.
Loomer will face a tough slog come November. Democrats have a 17.5-point advantage over Republicans in terms of voter registration within the district. Frankel won reelection in 2016 by more than 25 points and ran unopposed in 2018.
While Loomer led her Republican rivals in fundraising, she’s still trailing Frankel significantly in cash on hand. Loomer held around $220,000 as of July 29 while Frankel retains more than $1.25 million.
