On Friday, far-right conspiracy enabler and social media pariah, Laura Loomer, launched a bid for a congressional seat in Palm Beach.
According to the Miami Herald, Loomer is a 26-year-old blogger and conservative whose guerilla activism has caused her problems on most social media platforms, and a contributor to InfoWars. Yes, that InfoWars.
Election records suggest she filed to run for the open 2020 congressional seat in the Palm Beach district that’s home to Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on Friday.
While her campaign website states she resides in Florida’s Congressional District 21 for which she is running, her campaign’s PO Box lists an address in Fort Worth, Texas as the primary on FEC filings.
“This is today’s Washington Republican Party, a full-blown white nationalist is running for Congress in Florida,” said a spokesperson with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, originally reported by the Miami Herald.
“Republicans must condemn Loomer’s hate filled message or they own it.”
