Anna Paulina Luna, Republican frontrunner for Florida’s Pinellas County congressional race, has officially surpassed her Democrat opponents by raising $500,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021.
According to her latest press release, Luna now brings her total fundraising to over $1 million since launching her campaign for Florida’s 13th Congressional District in May 2021.
“I am thrilled by and grateful for the overwhelming support my campaign has received,” the America First candidate said in her press release. “We have worked hard to build a broad and diverse coalition of supporters that will power us to success in November, and it is exciting to see our efforts paying off so early in the race.”
The congressional candidate told RSBN that she believes the “tides are turning” at the grassroots level. With a base of 14,000 unique donors, at least 75 percent of her contributors are actually from Florida.
“We’re basically blowing the lid off,” Anna Paulina Luna said. “We also have the most cash on hand for this race.”
Despite not relying on “super-donors” like her Democrat counterparts, Anna Paulina Luna made more with less.
Anna Paulina Luna recently received an endorsement from President Donald Trump who considers her a “great fighter.” She was also recently endorsed by North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn.
The fourth quarter fundraising numbers came in after President Trump held a fundraiser event for Paulina Luna at his Mar-a-Lago home on Dec. 7.
Her current primary contenders include Republicans Amanda Makki, former adviser to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and Audrey Henson, a nonprofit founder, while Democrat opponents include current Reps. Ben Diamond, Michele Rayner-Goolsby, and Eric Lynn, a former national security adviser under the Obama administration.
Congressional District 13 is gearing up to become one of the most hotly contested and sought-after seats in the GOP’s race to regain the House come 2022.
