Anna Paulina Luna Flips Tampa Bay Congressional Seat for the GOP

Businesswoman and Air Force veteran Anna Paulina Luna flipped a Tampa Bay congressional seat for the GOP on Tuesday.

With 99 percent of the vote in, Luna took 53.4 percent of the vote while Democrat Eric Lynn followed with 44.8 percent and Libertarian Frank Crafy pulled 1.8 percent of the vote.

The seat had been held by former U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., who resigned the seat during his unsuccessful campaign against Gov. Ron DeSantis.

U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), welcomed Luna to Congress on Tuesday night.

“Congratulations to Anna Paulina Luna on her outstanding victory tonight. Anna will always stand up for American values and freedom. I look forward to working with Ann Paulina Luna in Congress and fighting to stop Joe Biden’s failed agenda,” he said.
