Pro-Trump U.S. Congressional contenders Laura Loomer and Byron Donalds are surging up the polls with Florida primary elections just weeks away.
The Fredericksburg, Va. polling firm, American Liberty Fund (ALF) conducted a poll between July 17 and 23 gauging the relative support of both candidates. The results showed that Loomer is the runaway favorite to win the Republican nomination in Florida’s 21st Congressional district, getting 54 percent support of GOP voters with none of her competitors coming close to her level of support.
Loomer is also very competitive in a head-to-head matchup with incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, a career politician who has been in office since 2013. In the weighted poll conducted by ALF, Loomer is within the margin of error, trailing Frankel a mere four points. Additionally, Loomer has strong favorability ratings in comparison to Frankel. She has a 35 percent favorability rating with an 11 percent unfavorable rating while Frankel has a 23 percent favorable rating and a 37 percent unfavorable rating.
Big League Politics has reported on how Loomer has consistently defeated Frankel in fundraising despite being choked off of all major social media platforms in a coordinated censorship campaign against her. Loomer’s campaign is showing that a candidate can be competitive and overcome tremendous institutional disadvantages with the right approach and message.
In Florida’s 19th Congressional District, pro-Trump candidate Byron Donalds is quickly surging to front-runner status in a competitive and crowded GOP primary. Donalds, a state representative and proud black conservative, is trailing by five percent and gaining rapidly on the two self-funded candidates currently atop the polls.
Donalds’ momentum has grown following high-profile endorsements from the Club for Growth and the National Rifle Association. He currently has a 36 percent favorable rating, according to the ALF poll. He is hoping that his pro-Trump bonafides will be enough to carry him to the general election in a Congressional seat that is open due to the retirement of incumbent Republican Francis Rooney.
ALF has announced that they are endorsing Loomer and Donalds as well as Amanda Makki in Florida, Lauren Boebert in Colorado, and Tiffany Shedd in Arizona because of the viability and pro-liberty positions of the various candidates.
The Florida primary elections are scheduled to take place on Aug. 18. Loomer’s Republican primary opponents include Christian Acosta, Liz Felton, Aaron Scanlan, Reba Sherrill and Michael Vilardi. Donalds’ Republican primary opponents include Darren Dione Aquino, Casey Askar, Dane Eagle, William Figlesthaler, Randy Henderson, Daniel Kowal, Christy McLaughlin and Dan Severson.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
