Wing Nut Laura Loomer wins GOP primary in Trump’s Palm Beach district

“Congress is about to get Loomered.”

A right-wing commentator supported by Trump confidant Roger Stone and far-right radio host Alex Jones defeated five opponents in the Florida Republican primary Tuesday in the congressional district that includes Mar-a-Lago and its notable voters, President Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Laura Loomer, 27, will face four-term Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel in the November general election. Frankel, who has served in Congress since 2013 and ran unopposed two years ago, easily defeated primary challenger Guido Weiss, a former legislative assistant for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii). Frankel will be the favorite in the heavily Democratic district that covers a swath of Palm Beach and Broward counties.
