Only a day after the primary elections across Florida, accusations of election fraud are already emerging.  Laura Loomer (R-FL) who seems to have lost her race to US Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL), refuses to concede the election on the grounds of voter fraud.

Laura Loomer seemed to give Webster a run for his money with her staggering list of endorsements, solid campaign fundraising numbers, and making displays of Webster's declining health.  Just this Summer, Loomer received a standing ovation from a crowd in the Villages, Florida for making a display of the congressman's absence to a congressional debate.

Previously, Loomer ran for the US House in 2020 and lost.  The firebrand has made a name for herself facing off against online censorship on all of her social media platforms.  Now, the candidate is calling foul once again and not conceding her election loss.

"I’m not conceding because I’m a winner and the reality is our Republican party is broken to its core," said Loomer after Webster was announced as the winner of the primary race.

According to the AP, Webster led Loomer 50.7% to 44.5% in the central Florida congressional district, with just over 5,200 votes giving Webster the edge over Loomer.

The rhetoric is not surprising in this particular race.  Throughout the primary, Loomer who is aligned with Roger Stone and General Michael Flynn, likened Webster to the DC Swamp on several occasions, typically citing his voting absence in the US House.
