Twitter-Censored Laura Loomer Wins Primary for Fla. Congressional Race

The 'Joan of Arc of the conservative movement'...

(Headline USA) A conservative social media provocateur who has been banned on Facebook and Twitter won her Republican primary on Tuesday and will challenge Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel for Congress in November.

Laura Loomer also won praise from President Donald Trump early Wednesday, who tweeted that she has a “great chance.”

According to a USA Today report, Loomer was joined at her victory party by political strategist Roger Stone, British writer Milo Yiannopoulos and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes.

“Lois Frankel doesn’t know it yet, but she is going to get Laura Loomered,” said Stone, who called her the “Joan of Arc of the conservative movement.”

Loomer faces an uphill battle, as Democrats outnumber Republicans by 40 percent in the district, which is occupied by a well-known incumbent.

Frankel has been a political fixture for decades in the Palm Beach County district, which is firmly Democratic.

Loomer has been a guest on Fox News and alt-right programs after gaining followers by ambushing journalists and politicians in stunts posted online.

Her campaign advisor is Karen Giorno, a political strategist who worked for Gov. Rick Scott and Trump’s 2016 campaign in Florida.

Associated Press contributed to this report.
