Investigative journalist Laura Loomer is now looking to switch career paths after being banned on all forms of social media. Loomer, is running for a U.S. House seat in Florida (Fla. congressional district 21), and she has outraised incumbent Rep. Lois Frankel (D Fla.) in the third quarter.
Loomer raised $154,000 in Q3 while incumbent Frankel raised $104,000 in what had to be a shock to Frankel.
Loomer, 26, a political activist and journalist, announced her run for Frankel’s seat on Aug. 2.
The fundraising total indicates Loomer is the top Republican candidate in the race. Michael Bluemling, Jr., a combat veteran, came in second in fundraising on the GOP side but managed just $20,937.
Loomer has previously attracted attention for a variety of stunts and confrontations, including bringing men she said were illegal aliens onto the California property of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Loomer also confronted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) over accusations that the Somalian immigrant married her brother for immigration fraud purposes.
In a statement, Loomer said she was humbled by the contributions.
“I’m humbled at the outpouring of support for my campaign,” said Loomer. “Despite the radical left, big tech tyrants and the fake-news media doing everything they can to hinder my campaign, this early showing puts career politician Lois Frankel and the do-nothing-Democrats in Congress on notice that no seat is safe and that I’m running to win.”
Karen Giorno, the state director for Florida for Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, and Loomer’s chief strategist, said Loomer’s “impressive haul for a first-time candidate” indicates Loomer can challenge Frankel.
“I believe this will be one of the most watched congressional races for 2020 and will be a bellweather for regaining the House,” Giorno said.

In May, shortly after Loomer and InfoWars founder Alex Jones, among others, were banned by Facebook, he wrote that he is monitoring “the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms.”
“This is the United States of America—and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!” he said. “We are monitoring and watching, closely!!”
