Anna Paulina Luna makes NRCC’s coveted “On The Radar” List


Several of Florida’s Republican congressional candidates led by Air Force Veteran Anna Paulina Luna have elevated their respective campaigns to a status very few candidates achieve every election cycle: On The Radar

Luna, Casey Askar, and Rep. Byron Donalds (R) were just added to the National Republican Congressional Committee list of “On The Radar” candidates for its Young Guns Program.

All three candidates have raised over $300K and could soon be elevated to “Contender” status.

Both Anna Paulina Luna and Byron Donalds are in contested primary races, with Luna looking to take on Rep. Charlie Crist (D) in the general election, and Donalds vying to win Rep. Francis Rooney’s soon-to-be-vacated seat, but must first defeat Askar who just dropped $3 million into the race.

Luna must also first get past Amanda Makki, who is already enjoying “Contender” status.

Other Floridians who are now on the “Contender” list are Dr. Leo Valentin, Dr. William Figlesthaler, and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

Gimenez skipped past the “On The Radar” status and was list as a “Contender.” Maybe Leader McCarthy’s and President Trump’s support of his campaign had something to do with that?

“These candidates are instrumental in helping Republicans reclaim the House majority,” said House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. “With their continued hard work and dedication Republicans will be one step closer to sending the socialist Democrats packing in November.” (NRCC)
