Anti-Trump group targets Florida, Loomer congressional campaign

The Lincoln Project, the PAC organized by a handful of “Never-Trumper” Republicans who are enriching themselves at the expense of President Donald Trump, is said to be honing in their efforts to disrupt key elections within the most coveted swing -state of all, Florida.

According to sources out of Washington, D.C., the group is allegedly trying to disrupt elections in Southwest and Southeast Florida, specifically the contentious Primary race in Florida’s 21st congressional district.

Annie Marie Delgado, a self-proclaimed activist who has received 2 cease and desist letters from the Trump campaign, is tied to the Christian Acosta campaign. She is being accused of spearheading the Lincoln Project’s effort to keep Conservative Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer from winning the primary race so that she does not face-off with Rep. Lois Frankel (D) in Florida’s 21st Congressional District, home to the Winter White House. 

Earlier this week, Delgado circulated an attack video against Loomer questioning her mental stability. The video was composed of distorted clips from a documentary called “You Can’t Watch This”. The original documentary featured several prominent conservatives who have been banned on social media and the clip that was used features Loomer discussing the emotional toll being banned and defamed by big tech has taken on her and many other conservatives in the nation who lost their livelihood as a result of censorship.

While the video can be perceived as a hit job on a political candidate, the video in question did not have any political disclaimers whatsoever. There was no “I approve this message…” Nor was there even a printed “Paid for by …”

The video obviously violates the FEC regulations about placing disclaimers on all political ads.

Loomer is by far the front runner in the race, and attacks by her opponents were always expected.  The latest FEC financial reports show that Loomer crushed the entire field of Republican candidates with nearly $385,000 raised in Quarter 2, which is about 100 times more than her nearest opponent, Christian Acosta, who only managed to raise $3,942.

“One of the biggest issues of concern among Team Trump in Florida has arisen over the meteoric rise of activist Annie Marie Delgado.  During the 2018 election cycle, the litigation counsel to Donald J. Trump for President Inc. (the “Campaign”) sent a cease and desist letter to Annie Marie Delgado, a real-estate agent and self-proclaimed grassroots activist who claims that she is currently running the campaign of one of Loomer’s primary opponents, Christian Acosta, who is linked to Cindy Yang. The FBI opened a public corruption investigation into Yang, a Chinese woman who represented herself as a Republican donor and South Florida massage-parlor owner who has been accused of selling Chinese investors access to President Trump through GY US Investments LLC. 

The first Cease and Desist Letter that was sent to Delgado on behalf of the Trump campaign on May 7, 2018, accused Delgado of falsely representing herself as an “affiliate or authorized agent of the Campaign” (Source)

But just as The Lincoln Project is suspected of meddling in Loomer’s primary election, could the fix be in, or are the rest of the candidates in the FL-21 race playing a different, yet aligned political angle by joining forces to take on Loomer? 

On a recent Facebook post, 56-year-old Congressional candidate Reba Sherrill (R), stated that all 5 of the candidates have joined a pact to not support Loomer if she wins the primary election on August 18th. 

“None of the 5 candidates will support Laura Loomer if she were to win the primary,” stated Sherill “We will campaign against her”. 

Sherrill went on to add that the group would first ” support a write-in candidate or a no-party affiliation” before voting for Loomer.

About two weeks ago, The Floridian spoke to Sherrill to ask her about her campaign to get a little background history. Sherrill said that she quit practicing oncology 30 years ago because she realized that the treatments and procedures she was giving her patients were actually killing them. We asked Sherill where she went to school, but the former medical professional could not remember the name of the school she attended. More interesting is that Sherrill’s claim that she quit practicing medicine 30 years ago would make her a doctor at 26 years of age.

Doogie Howser? The math just doesn’t add up, unless she was a wonder kid who excelled in school and finished her medical degree and residency before the age of 26.

For the last four fundraising quarters, since Loomer filed to run for Congress on August 2, 2019, she has exceeded political expectations as a first-time outsider candidate, managing to outraise all of her opponents combined, including Lois Frankel, the four-term Democrat incumbent. 

There is no denying that Loomer is the undisputed front runner and favorite candidate of President Trump, who has retweeted in support of Loomer’s race twice. This makes Loomer the perfect target for the Never Trumpers who are running against her and are allegedly being assisted by the Lincoln Project whose stated mission is to get rid of President Trump and anyone who supports him and the America First movement.
