Trump Does it AGAIN – Endorsed Candidate Claims Victory!
(LibertySociety.com) – Yet another Trump-endorsed candidate claimed victory during the primary elections on August 23 — Air Force veteran and now House-hopeful Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL). The candidate won 44.5% of the vote, whereas her closest opponent, Kevin Hayslett, only captured 33.6% in Florida’s 13th district. Luna ran her campaign on an America First agenda, with former President Donald Trump singing her praises with a resounding endorsement in September 2021.
Her win adds to the 92% success rate of candidates holding the previous US leader’s seal of approval, proving his influence is alive and well amongst Republicans.
In what’s shaping up to be a clean sweep in Florida, 15 of Trump’s 15 endorsed candidates won in primaries including Anna Paulina Luna from FL-13 Congressional district

Luna grew up in a low-income family in California and joined the military to bring herself out of poverty. Her platform includes improving services for veterans like herself and her husband, stopping illegal immigration, setting term limits for those elected to office, and fighting inflation.
At the time of her endorsement, Trump said a win in her district is “key” for Republicans to take the Lower Chamber in 2022. The former president called Luna a “warrior” and a “winner.” Following her victory, the candidate addressed Trump in a tweet, where she hoped her success made him proud.
Thank you Pinellas County! I look forward to representing you in Washington DC and delivering results for our community! President Trump… I kicked ass like you wanted me too. 🇺🇸🙏🇺🇸

In November, she’ll face her opponent on the Democratic side, nominee Eric Lynn, to see who will represent Floridians starting in 2023.
