Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday endorsed GOP candidate Anna Paulina Luna in her campaign to represent Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
Citing her stance on border security and other key priorities, Trump awarded Luna his “complete and total endorsement.”
“Anna Paulina Luna is a great fighter who is running for Congress in Florida. She is an Air Force veteran who puts America First, unlike her RINO opponents. Anna is committed to strong borders, serving our Veterans, and ensuring Florida’s beautiful coastlines are protected,” Trump said in the statement.
Luna’s campaign platform stances are similar to issues Trump took on while in office. For example, Luna has pledged “to fight for law enforcement and first responders to have the resources they need to protect us and ensure that true bad actors are held accountable.”
Additionally, the Republican candidate promised to “support any ban on Congress or its employees becoming lobbyists to cash out after leaving office” and “work to enact term limits for elected officials.”
“This is an important race because it is “key” to taking back the House. Anna is a warrior, she is a winner, and it’s time for all America First Republicans to unite behind her strong campaign. Anna has my complete and total endorsement,” Trump continued.
Luna, an Air Force veteran and small business owner, is running for the open seat vacated by Democrat Charlie Crist (D-FL-13), who announced he is running for governor in 2022 against Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The veteran’s campaign is her second attempt to represent the district in central Florida. In 2020, Crist narrowly defeated Luna by 5 points to hold on to his position. In the race, Trump also endorsed Luna, saying he was “impressed” by her.
