    33-Year-Old Veteran Retakes Congressional Seat from Dems: ‘Today We Made History’

    Published on

    One of the earliest seats in the midterm elections was won by a 33-year-old Florida Air Force veteran.

    Republican Anna Paulina Luna defeated Democrat Eric Lynn in the race for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, according to Decision Desk HQ’s predictions.

    In Florida, the polls closed at 7 p.m., and less than an hour later, Luna was declared the victor of the tight election.

    In a tweet congratulating herself on her victory, Luna thanked her fans. The Republican emphasized the importance of her grassroots effort in defeating an opponent who had significantly more resources than she had in the general election.

    Luna tweeted, “We made history today.”

    “I look forward to serving you in DC!”

    With 95 percent of the votes in, Luna won by a margin of about 8.6 percent, a development that might indicate the Republican Party’s emerging dominance in Florida.

    Formerly serving as the Democratic representative for Florida’s 13th district, Charlie Crist left his post to concentrate on his bid to unseat Gov. Ron DeSantis as governor.

    As soon as the Florida polls closed, Fox News predicted that DeSantis would win the state’s governorship and that Crist would lose.

    One of the first election flips occurred when Luna won. Six seats are all that are required for Republicans to control the House.

    The Pinellas County district, which includes the cities of St. Petersburg and Clearwater, will be represented in Congress by the Hispanic veteran and military spouse.
