She may be banned from Twitter, but that’s not stopping right wing activist Laura Loomer from running for Congress. Loomer announced on Friday that she’s running in Florida’s 21st district, which is north of Miami.
In a statement released by her campaign manager, Loomer announced that Trump’s 2016 Florida state campaign director Karen Giorno will be working on her team as a general consultant.

Democrats responded by saying, “This is today’s Washington Republican Party, a full-blown white nationalist is running for Congress in Florida. Republicans must condemn Loomer’s hate filled message or they own it,” reports the Miami Herald.
Loomer, who is Jewish, said her Democratic opponent is anti-Semitic.
“My opponent cares far more about radical leftist special interests, her anti-Semitic colleagues, and protecting criminal illegal aliens from deportation than about her district and constituents here in Florida who she’s supposed to be working for, not against.”
She has also promised to fight big tech’s censorship of conservatives if elected.
Earlier this year, Loomer was kicked off Instagram, Facebook and had her Paypal account deactivated. Twitter banned her last year after some tweets she made about Ilhan Omar supposedly violated the social media site’s terms of service.
