In the 2020 presidential election, Florida Rep. Charlie Crist (D) won his reelection bid over congressional hopeful Anna Paulina Luna (R). With the former Governor of Florida shifting his focus to the upcoming gubernatorial race, Paulina Luna is gearing up to once again make a run for Florida’s 13th Congressional District by releasing her first campaign ad.
In a new advertisement titled “Ditch,” Paulina Luna affirms that “anything is possible in America” while setting the tone for her Congressional campaign by discussing her upbringing.
In the 60 second digital advertisement, she begins by relating that her “mom chose life over abortion and decided to have me.”
“Growing up, my family struggled with substance abuse,” she continued, commenting that “we moved around a lot, and I even lived in a drug house.” She added that she “survived a gang shooting and an armed robbery.” However, Paulina Luna “never gave up because being born in America is like winning the lottery.”
The lone Republican running for the seat, the race also includes 3 Democratic hopefuls that are looking to keep the district blue. Rep. Ben Diamonds (D), Michele Rayner-Goolsby (D), and Eric Lynn (D), President Barack Obama’s (D) former national security adviser, have all announced their Congressional campaigns.
“I joined the Air Force and found hope, helped rescue my dad from drug abuse and homelessness, and made stopping human trafficking the mission of my life,” she shared.
“Anywhere else on earth, my story would have ended in a ditch, but America saved me, and that’s why I’m running for Congress,” she asserted.
In turn, Paulina Luna shared that the district is in need of change.
“If you want more of the same, you know who to vote for,” she lamented. “But if you want someone who will serve our country instead of themselves,” then she argues the clear choice is to vote for her.
