With the 2022 midterm elections coming up, fundraising has been the focus of all the candidates running for office. Now, firebrand Laura Loomer (R-FL), who is once again running for Congress, has out-raised incumbent US Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) ahead of their hotly contested primary.
Loomer, who is recognized as one of the most de-platformed political figures in American politics, is now taking a second shot at a Florida Congressional seat, jumping from CD 21 to CD 11.
According to the latest FEC report, Loomer raised $106,277 in Q3, crushing Webster's $62,923 raised.
The bigger takeaway here is that Rep. Webster only leads Loomer in total money raised this cycle by $58,000.
Laura Loomer's latest FEC report:
Rep. Daniel Webster's REC filing:
Loomer has aligned herself with "Trump Republicans," often bashing "RINOs" and speaking out in support of former-President Donald Trump (R).
Loomer has been de-platformed in the same fashion as the former president, even speaking to the Florida House urging them to pass the Big Tech Bill last year, halting social media from censoring political candidates.
Along with being the first de-platformed candidate and campaign in United States history, Loomer also announced that she has been federally prohibited from owning a firearm. In other words, her Second Amendment rights have been banned without cause.
Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA) have both endorsed her candidacy against Rep. Webster. Former President Donald Trump has not endorsed Loomer during the 2022 midterm cycle, but did endorse and voted for her during the 2020 presidential election.
