Right-wing activist Laura Loomer wins Florida GOP race

Right-wing internet personality and commentator Laura Loomer has delivered a surprise upset in Florida’s GOP primary for the 21st Congressional district’s House seat.

Loomer, 27, who has been banned by Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for repeated instances of “hate speech,” could not take to social media to celebrate after beating five other candidates and securing over 42 percent of the vote.

A Twitter account that supports the young political hopeful quoted her as saying in a fundraising email that “Congress is about to get Loomered,” a reference to the former tag line featured in her viral internet content.

“I will have plenty of opportunities in the halls of Congress to confront The Squad members & call them out on their support 4 Communism & j1had1st alliances,” she added.

Loomer is also banned by the likes of CPAC, GoFundMe, Venmo, MGM Resorts, PayPal, Lyft, Uber and Uber Eats.
