Laura Loomer, a conservative commentator and activist, calls herself “the most banned woman on the Internet” and who once handcuffed herself to the front door of Twitter’s office in New York.
Loomer will now face incumbent Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel in the General Election. Loomer has the support of the district’s most famous constituent, President Donald Trump and controversial Trump confidante Roger Stone who spoke at her election night party.
“Great going Laura,” Trump tweeted upon news of her victory. “You have a great chance against a Pelosi puppet!”
Laura Loomer, along with two brothers 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 is a former employee of Project Veritas, a conservative organization known for producing secretly recorded and deceptively edited undercover audio and video investigations about media organizations and left-wing groups.
Laura Loomer, 28, is a Jewish Conservative investigative journalist and activist.

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.
